March 18 Update: We in the Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts and across Webster University are doing all we can to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and patrons. Due to preventative measures associated with health and safety concerns surrounding national COVID-19 recommendations, all remaining events for the Spring 2020 semester have been canceled.
Please know that our number one priority is the safety, health and well-being of our audiences, staff, faculty and the young artists whose families have entrusted us with their care.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
A SignatureSeries event presented by faculty member Melissa Bishop with additional artists. A musician since childhood, Melissa Bishop has found her way from classical and jazz to songwriting. Trained to compose, she found that she enjoyed the turns of phrase in popular music - and the chase began. She writes for the Nashville world of country and contemporary Christian (her most recent Christmas tour was as lead pianist for the Transiberian Orchestra Tribute Show: The Prophecy.) When she's writing for herself, it’s a mix of singer-songwriter, blues, pop and southern rock. For Melissa, nothing is better than a group of good friends, good wine, and a good story that winds up a song. When Melissa isn't working on her music, she helps to develop the talents of up-and-coming songwriters. She has been a professor at Webster University for 18 years, where she teaches music theory, history, and the department’s newest degree - Songwriting.
