Music | Parker Ramsay

Salon Series

May 6, 6 pm - 7 pm

TICKETS

Salon Series, the Parrish Art Museum’s concert program featuring world-class artists performing in an intimate, casual setting.

In a unique performance at the Museum, harpist Parker Ramsay will bring new energy to the harp repertoire, expanding the capability of the instrument in unexpected new ways. Integrating contemporary music and historical performance, his work defies easy categorization. Equally at home on modern and period harps, Ramsay is dedicated to invigorating the existing canon while delving into new and underperformed works.

A native of Nashville, Tennessee, Ramsay began harp studies with his mother at a young age before moving to the UK at age 16. He was awarded the undergraduate organ scholarship at King’s College, Cambridge where he served under the direction of Stephen Cleobury. His tenure with the Choir of King’s College included performing for the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols in 2012, as well as six international tours and four recordings. Parker has performed at the Concertgebouw in, the Royal Albert Hall, the Musée d’Orsay, the National Center for the Performing Arts, Sejong Center for the Performing Arts, Verizon Hall, and Alice Tully Hall.

After receiving his bachelor’s degree in history at Cambridge, Ramsay pursued graduate studies in historical keyboards at Oberlin Conservatory. In 2014, he was awarded First Prize at the Sweelinck International Organ Competition. He then studied modern harp at The Juilliard School, under the tutelage of Nancy Allen. He is a regular contributor for VAN Magazine, and his writing has appeared in Cleveland Classical, The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Parker is co-director of A Golden Wire, a period-instrument ensemble devoted to French and English music from the seventeenth century. He has appeared with the Shanghai Camerata, the Academy of Sacred Drama, Ruckus, Teatro Nuovo and Apollo’s Fire.
