Pamela Howland is a gifted pianist who breathes life and vitality into classical music for audiences of all ages and backgrounds.  Trained at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music and the Eastman School of Music, where she received the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Piano Performance and Literature, she performs extensively as a soloist and chamber musician.  Highlights include numerous recitals in the United States, featured recitals in Paris and Vienna, a tour of Colombia, South America, live solo appearances on National Public Radio broadcasts in Minnesota, New York and North Carolina, and appearances with the Winston-Salem Symphony, Charlotte Repertory Orchestra, and Wake Forest University Orchestra. The National Alliance Française recently added her to its National  Speakers/Performers Bureau roster and she was selected for the North Carolina Arts Council’s Touring Artist Directory from 2002-2007.

Prior to teaching at Wake Forest University (1988-1998) she held positions at universities in New York, Minnesota and North Carolina where she taught piano and music history.  This fall Dr. Howland returns to the Wake Forest University Music Department as an adjunct assistant professor.  Her passion for promoting classical music has led to her unique lecture-recital style which allows audiences and students to go away both entertained and educated, feeling that they have learned something about themselves as well as the music.

Pamela Howland has produced ten CDs in the last ten years, including her most recent, HOMELAND:   Pamela Howland Plays Chopin. Her recordings are an eclectic mix of five solo piano programs, three recordings of Christmas music, a collaborative disc of African-American Spirituals with Wake Forest University professor, tenor Richard Heard, and another of French poetry and music with Wake Forest University Law Professor, Dick Schneider.
