Natalie Parker

Natalie Parker is the liaison for the School of Music. She brings a unique experience to the Admissions team as a college and high school music alumna of UNCSA. You can find her on campus leading tours, speaking at information sessions and facilitating music auditions.

What excites you about your job?

I am excited to become more involved with the application process for prospective music students. It really is a great feeling to help someone understand and gain acceptance into the supportive artistic environment that is UNCSA.

Where can we meet you?

You will most likely find me at college fairs sponsored by music festivals and music educator conferences across the U.S. Locally, you may also find me playing cello at church services, regional symphony concerts and weddings!

What's your favorite spot on the UNCSA campus?

The fourth floor of the Library, thumbing through the music scores, or in Watson Hall listening to a concert.

How about Winston-Salem?

I have to choose? I love all of Winston-Salem! However, aperture, an independent cinema house on Fourth Street, is one of my commonly forgotten favorite places to spend an evening.

If you were on a deserted island and could only bring 3 things, what would you bring?

I would most definitely bring my cello (or perhaps a carbon fiber one that wouldn’t melt in the island sun), probably my favorite edition of the Bach Cello Suites, and some sort of digital reading device with access to all the books I’ve always wanted to read, but never had the time to!
