Blackburn’s Department of Music & Theatre continues its Guest Artist Series February 6 – 10, 2023, featuring Los Angeles-based professional singer, actor, and teacher Meridith Pyle. The week-long residency at Blackburn will include professional-level workshops open to the public and conclude with a free community concert.
The Guest Artist Series launched in the fall of 2022 as part of Blackburn’s innovative academic program – designed to hone music performance skills and share in-depth entrepreneurial knowledge needed to launch professional careers in the music industry. During her Blackburn residency, Pyle will lead a Masterclass on Tuesday, February 7, at 4:30 pm in Bothwell Auditorium.
As a singer, Pyle works primarily as a score vocalist for film and television projects such as “Doctor Strange,” “Frozen 2,” “Mulan,” “Sing 2,” and “Minions.” Additional credits include appearances on “The Ellen Show,” NBC’s “The Real O’Neals,” TV Land’s “Jennifer Falls,” and she competed with her a cappella group ‘Snow Problem’ on The CW’s “Christmas Caroler Challenge.” She is on the roster of the award-winning ensemble ‘Tonality,’ a group using the art of choral music to promote social justice. She sings regularly with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, LA Master Chorale, and many churches and synagogues around Los Angeles. As a teacher, Pyle currently serves on the voice faculty at USC and Pepperdine and works extensively with Harvard-Westlake school. She is an active member of the National Association for Teachers of Singing and has a thriving private voice studio.
The Series is funded by Blackburn’s Student Experience Fund and presented in cooperation with the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
