Toronto-based Liz Parker has been a classical music publicist since 1996. In 2008, Liz became the Foundress of LIZPR, (www.lizpr.com) a boutique PR firm that publicizes, promotes, and styles musicians for photos shoots, concerts, or auditions. "I managed to find a way to combine my deeply serious love for musicians and my shallow obsession with clothes and accessories," Liz explains. Previous PR positions were held at the Corporation of Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. In these positions, Liz became well-acquainted with the trials and tribulations of promoting high-profile guest artists, from the easy-going to the most "particular". Liz also worked at the CBC in Toronto (Associate Producer) and freelanced in Vancouver (host/interviewer/producer). Liz regularly mentors music and PR students re: their careers, and as a former piano student herself, earned three degrees in music, focusing on piano. She also studied flamenco dancing in Vancouver with Rosario Ancer and previously, ballet with Soonee Lee at the Vancouver Academy of Music. "Mrs. Lee is still delighted that I kept up my dance stretches to this day," Liz says. "When I go home to visit, I greet Mrs. Lee by way of a développé!" When Liz isn’t writing to deadline or telling people what to wear, she can be found shopping, Facebooking, Tweeting, cooking, organizing get-togethers, or turning pages for some of the world’s finest pianists.
