The offerings of Melodious Accord, Inc. are as varied as the ideas of Alice Parker. They are based on her own life experience, with focuses on performance, teaching and composition/arranging. Music for her is a unified whole, and each of these disciplines throws light on the others. Each has an entry level as well as high professional achievement, and Melodious Accord wishes to bring together under its umbrella these often separated groups.
We implement this vision by sponsoring Alice’s personal appearances, which often include performances of her work as well as community SINGS, and workshops for varied groups. There is a strong educational commitment to the Seminar and Score Study programs, where small groups of students come to study with her. The Musicians of Melodious Accord, our professional chamber chorus, presents occasional concerts, and has a busy recording schedule. Many readers await the probing editorials in our quarterly Newsletter.
