The Commonwealth Chorale is pleased to announce that Mrs. Kimberly Parker, Adjunct Professor of Piano at Liberty University in Lynchburg, will accompany the Fall 2018 performances of Johann Sebastian Bach's Christmas Oratorio. Mrs. Parker holds a BS in Piano Pedagogy from Bryan College and an MA in Music and Worship from Liberty University. She has served as a member of the Liberty University faculty since 2015. There she teaches applied piano and group piano classes for students pursuing degrees in education, performance, and church music. She regularly performs as a collaborative pianist and soloist at Liberty and in the greater Lynchburg area. She is also an active church musician and currently serves as pianist at Trinity United Methodist Church in Concord, Virginia. Her professional affiliations include membership in the Music Teachers National Association and the Lynchburg Music Teachers Association. In addition to her classes at Liberty University, Mrs. Parker maintains a thriving private piano studio in the Lynchburg area, where she teaches students ages 5 to 70. She counts it a privilege to advocate, both through collaboration and teaching, for the lifelong pursuit of joy and excellence in music making. In turn, the Chorale counts it a privilege to welcome the participation of such an accomplished musician to our ranks.
