HARLAN D. PARKER

Harlan D. Parker has been the conductor of the Peabody Conservatory Wind Ensemble and coordinator of the Music Education Division at the Peabody Conservatory of Music of The Johns Hopkins University since 1990. In the fall of 2007, he was also appointed as the music director/conductor of the Peabody Youth Orchestra in the Preparatory Division of the Peabody Institute. Under his direction, the Peabody Conservatory Wind Ensemble has given over forty world premières, and has performed at state, regional and national conventions. As well as his duties at Peabody, Dr Parker has a very active musical life outside the conservatory. He is a past-president of The Conductors Guild, an international service organization dedicated to encouraging and promoting the highest standards in the art and profession of conducting. He is also a member of The American Bandmasters Association, an organization whose membership is by invitation and recognizes “outstanding achievement in the field of the concert band and its music.”

He is active regionally, nationally and internationally as a guest conductor, conducting pedagogue, clinician and adjudicator, having worked with professional musicians and students from all fifty states and over forty countries. In his first year as a faculty member at Peabody, Harlan Parker reorganised the Peabody Conservatory Wind Ensemble in its present format after several years of non-existence and was awarded the Peabody Student Council Faculty/Administration Award for outstanding contributions to the Peabody Community. In the fall of 2000, he accepted the first graduate class of Wind Conducting students. Graduates and students of the program are teachers and conductors in high schools and colleges and conductors of military bands, with two recent Masters students accepting positions as conductors with the United States Air Force. Dr Parker received his Bachelor of Music from Emporia State University and his Master of Music and Doctor of Philosophy in Music Education with an emphasis in Conducting from the University of Kansas and has completed post-doctoral work at the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies in New York.
