Mary Beth Carlson - A Grand Evening of Music
Mary Beth Carlson, composer, recording artist, author, inspirational speaker and former Teacher of the Year performs for a wide variety of inspirational, community, and corporate events including concerts, women's ministry programs, worship leading, conferences and retreats, church worship services and fund raising benefits. Her performances offer a heartwarming experience filled with warmth and intimacy, spiced with high-spirited humor and spontaneous musical vignettes. Mary Beth presents an inspiring message of hope and encouragement. Woven throughout her piano artistry are stories that have influenced her music and defining experiences which have strengthened her faith journey. Much of the music she has composed has been inspired by her daughter Jody who was born with cerebral palsy and autism and later diagnosed with severe mental illness. Mary Beth is accompanied on several piano selections by breathtaking video images of snowcapped mountains, serene sunsets reflected in the sea off the Pacific shoreline, moonlit starry nights and more. These unforgettable impressions of God's creation are truly awe-inspiring and add a uniquely appealing dimension to her passionate piano performance. Mary Beth has produced and recorded twenty-eight albums of piano orchestral music which are distributed by MBC Productions. Her most recent release is Faith, Hope & Love ... hymns for praise and worship. She's been featured on other CDs with Jim Brickman, Patty Peterson, J.D. Steele, The Blenders and Steve Hall, and additional inspirational CDs by Integrity Music with artists including Sandi Patty, Darlene Zschech and Don Moen (Christmas Worship). In the past five years, Mary Beth debuted as an author and film score composer. She joined Dr. John Gray (Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus), best-selling author Brian Tracy and others to co-author a book titled Words of Wisdom ... Experts Share Strategies For Mastering Life & Business Relationships. In 2017, she composed and recorded a film score for the independent film, Living Word. Mary Beth and her husband Kent recently completed an integrated, intergenerational music curriculum for Grand Living, a new, innovative company specializing in the development and management of distinctive senior living communities.
