Born in Sydney, Australia, Bronwyn Edwards has lived in West Seattle since 1987. She has received recognition as a pianist, composer, teacher, recording artist and mentor to young musicians.
Bron studied piano at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music where she topped the state of New South Wales in her piano examinations, won numerous Sydney Eisteddfod competitions and composed songs performed in Australian radio at a young age.
She has performed solo piano in the main terminal at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport each year from 2007-2015 during the December holiday season, where she has made many friends among the thousands of passengers sojourning during their travels.
Bron's love of choral music led to her first publicly commissioned choral work, "No Bridges (Vashon Suite)," commissioned by the Vashon Island Chorale under the artistic direction of Dr. Gary Cannon, to celebrate the Chorale's 25th anniversary. "No Bridges" was premiered in Vashon and West Seattle in the summer of 2014, with a sneak preview in Seattle's Benaroya Hall during a choral event in March 2014.
Bron has served as Music Director at West Seattle's Fauntleroy Church, UCC, since February 2008, where she directs the Chancel Choir, and nurtures musical talent among the Fauntleroy community. She has mentored many musicians and artists, providing opportunities for them to perform solo and with other musicians, always focused on the joy that music can bring to their lives.
She has also directed the South Seattle College Community Choir since 2015, a group of 60+ singers from the surrounding community, supported by the college's Continuing Education office.
As a recording artist, Bron has produced two CDs as a singer-songwriter, "Late Bloomer" (2003) and "She Loves the Rain" (2005). She co-produced a sound healing CD "Transformations" in 2007 with singer-songwriter Tam Katzin. Her piano CDs "The Gift" (Christmas 2007), "Grandissimo" (2008), "Inamorata" (2010) and "Midnights and Mockingbirds" (2014) and "Arrivals and Departures" (2015) showcase her pianistic diversity and her ability to communicate musically and emotively with people of all ages, races, and musical tastes.
Bron teaches piano and music theory privately in Seattle and Normandy Park. She taught piano at South Seattle College in 2013, and has returned as Director of the South Seattle College Community Choir since 2015.
Bron lives in West Seattle with her beloved basset hound, Charlee, who inspired Bron's YouTube song "A Basset is an Asset," enjoyed by animal lovers the world over.
Music connects people in so many ways, at so many levels. Bron is truly a musical catalyst, making music and generating musical connections wherever she brings her talents and joy.
