ABOUT THE ARTIST
Parker Kitterman is a keyboardist, composer, conductor and collaborative musician. Since 2010 he has served as Director of Music and Organist at Christ Church, Philadelphia, where he oversaw the installation and dedication of a splendid new pipe organ, C.B. Fisk’s Op. 150. As soloist and accompanist, Parker has performed with a wide range of artists, including the International Contemporary Ensemble, the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, and Singing City Choir. He holds degrees from Duke University, the Yale School of Music/Institute of Sacred Music, and the Brussels Conservatory, where he studied on a Fulbright Fellowship. A recent winner of the King’s Singers New Music Prize for his setting of Malcolm Guite’s poem “The Singing Bowl,” Kitterman is a composer with wide-ranging interests and influences. His writing is born out of a studied approach to improvisation, a literary sensitivity, and an ongoing commitment to providing fresh, relevant material for musicians and audiences alike. One large-scale work, Requiem for the Charleston Nine was described as “producing a seamless fabric in which plainchant, modern classical, and jazz styles not merely co-exist but come together to proffer a whole greater than the sum of their individual parts.” (Chestnut Hill Local)
