Catherine Parsons-Wynder is a performer, teacher, and arranger. She has performed in world class venues such as Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall, Merkin Hall, Kosciuszko Foundation, as well as the Museum of Natural History, and she has performed with over thirty different chamber ensembles, including the American String Quartet and the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. Her career developments are primarily in music, but she also pursues interest in creative writing, journaling and human rights. She has given many community performances and raised charity funds for organizations such as World Vision, A.G. Rhodes Health & Rehab nursing home, Columbia Hospital, Corpus Christi Church, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, and she is currently organizing a concert series to promote the Price of Life campaign in New York City.

Mrs. Parsons-Wynder initially gained her musical inspiration through her family and has been performing since her youth. Her family provided her countless opportunities to perform, to participate in event planning, and to experiment with new music and arranging. She grew up participating in her mother’s studio recitals at home and enjoys an annual family tradition of organizing and performing Christmas programs at church. One of Catherine’s projects during her studies at the Manhattan School of Music was "Freedom Notes", a recital series promoting awareness of human trafficking. She has made countless arrangements for solo viola and viola with various ensembles which she often uses to perform with.

Catherine currently resides in Brooklyn, New York with her husband, Lawrence Wynder and teaches at the Woodmere Music Studios in Woodmere, New York. She plays on a Raymond J. Melanson viola made in 1987.
