Dr Alicia W. Walker

Alicia W. Walker is Assistant Professor of Choral Music at the University of South Carolina, where she directs the University Chorus, teaches undergraduate and graduate Conducting and Choral Methods, and supervises student teachers. She holds degrees from Florida State University (BME), the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (MCM), and the University of Georgia (DMA). Her conducting teachers have included André Thomas, John Dickson, and Allen Crowell. An experienced music educator, Dr. Walker taught at the elementary, middle, and high school levels in Florida and Georgia, prior to joining the music education faculty at the University of Georgia. She brings a strong sense of the ethics of music education to the choral music students in her classes. Choirs under her direction have gained recognition for their beautiful tone and expressive singing, and have performed at Carnegie Hall and at Atlanta’s Spivey Hall.

In addition to her teaching responsibilities, Dr. Walker is a leader in professional music organizations. She is immediate Past President of Georgia ACDA, having previously held positions in Southern Division, including several ACDA convention planning committees. Polyphony, an organization for pastoral musicians, tapped Dr. Walker as their first national Leadership Team coordinator, a position she held through 2011. She maintains an active schedule as a guest conductor and clinician, conducting in Georgia, Mississippi, Virginia, and South Carolina in the last year. A long-time church musician, Dr. Walker is in demand as a writer, liturgist, and lecturer. Her recent articles appear in Choral Journal, Georgia Music News, and Review and Expositor. Other professional memberships include NAfME, SCMEA, GMEA, and Choristers Guild.
