A Mother’s Day Concert with Robert Parker
Robert Parker: A Mother’s Day Concert
Join the Oceanside Theatre Company live on Sunday for an afternoon of elegant, classy performances of the music you know and love!
Award-winning pianist and graduate of the Drake University Instrumental Music Department, Robert Parker has been performing professionally for four decades on record as well as in concert. Fond of memorable melodies, dynamics, chord textures, and driving rhythms derived from classical and jazz experiences from within the string section of orchestras (st. bass, violin), big bands (st. bass, piano) and country (piano), and concert bands (bass horn, st. bass). Known for a solid left hand and classically fueled cadenzas or a gentle touch when coaxing the heart into ballads, his style is dynamic and memorable. Having performed on, produced, and scored (strings, horns, vocals) countless recordings in the field of country music, the Iowa native is also known for his ground-breaking weekly appearances in the early 80s on the country variety TV show, Ozark Opry.
