Parker Ramsay’s career eludes easy categorization, being unique in its integration of projects and performances on the harp, organ and harpsichord.
Equally at home on modern and period instruments, he specializes in breathing new life into the canon as well as delving into new and underperformed works. His first album for King's College, Cambridge, a transcription of Bach's Goldberg Variations, showcases the harp as an instrument of beauty, sincerity and transcendence, standing alongside the keyboards and string instruments as a worthy vehicle for transmitting the work of history's greatest composers.
A native of Nashville, Tennessee, Parker was awarded the organ scholarship at King’s College, Cambridge at age 17, where he served under the direction of Sir Stephen Cleobury. His tenure with the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge included performing for the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols in 2012, as well as six international tours and four recordings. In 2014, he was awarded First Prize at the Amsterdam International Organ Competition. He is co-director of A Golden Wire and performs regularly with internationally acclaimed ensemble Apollo's Fire, The Academy of Sacred Drama and the Shanghai Camerata. He holds degrees from Cambridge University, Oberlin Conservatory and the Juilliard School. He lives in New York City.
