Award winning pianist and graduate of the Drake University Instrumental Music Department, Robert Parker has been performing professionally for four decades on records as well as in concert, including as an entertainer at Oceanside Theatre Company.
His work reflects a fondness for memorable melodies, dynamics, chord textures and driving rhythms derived from classical and jazz experiences from within the string section of orchestras, Big Bands, country and concert bands.
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, produced and scored countless recordings in the field of country music, the Iowa native is also known for his groundbreaking weekly appearances in the early 1980s on the country variety TV show “Ozark Opry.”
