Pamela Sohriakoff holds the Master of Music degree in Piano Performance from University of Minnesota Duluth. Classically trained, she plays and teaches a broad range of music. She is an experienced worship leader, playing piano and leading vocally––from contemporary chord charts to hymns and classical works.
Pamela has had a dual musical journey as a pianist and vocalist throughout her career. She toured as a pianist and singer two summers with Continental Singers in her high school days, touring the South Pacific and Europe. Leading vocally from the piano since she was eleven, she excels in arranging hymns and contemporary chord charts. It is her joy to be able to teach and collaborate with others in improvisation. She teaches the Improvisation Class during UNW Summer Piano Institute.
An accomplished singer, she has an instinctive awareness as a collaborative pianist that is attuned to the nuance of the vocalist. As an Adjunct Instructor of Music at University of Northwestern, she enjoys teaching piano and collaborating in the vocal department, playing for choirs, competitions, recitals, and Opera Workshop. Literally hundreds of pages of music are sight-read and performed each semester in a wide range of styles.
Pamela is a member of Minnesota Music Teachers Association.
Faculty member since 2014; also teaches piano & voice for UNW Academy of Music
