Amanda Vernon’s intriguing mantra, “speaking to authentic beauty through music, the language of the soul,” illustrates how her audience experiences her work. On Friday, Nov. 30, the University of Findlay will have the privilege of hosting this internationally acclaimed bilingual singer, composer and pianist from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Alumni Memorial Union Atrium.
Vernon will be performing as part of UF’s Music Bach’s Concert Series, which is free and open to the public. Parking will also be free.
The 30-year-old Phoenix, Arizona resident has shared her original pop music across the United States and six foreign countries. She has over a decade of experience in both studio recording and live performance. Her seventh album, “Justice for All,” debuted in 2015; the title track won the pop-electronic music genre of the international art competition, ArtPrize.
Some of her notable performances have included:
- World Youth Days in Sydney, Australia and Madrid, Spain in 2008 and 2011
- Regular appearances at the bi-annual National Catholic Youth Conference
- Singing the National Anthem at Lambeau Field for the Green Bay Packers (2014 Bishop’s Charity Game and 2015 Monday Night Football on ESPN)
