Raised in a family of singers and musicians, Lianna Wimberly Williams sang her first public solo to her church home congregation at age four. Her early exposure to a broad range of vocal styles led to an advanced musicality level, thus qualifying her experience with an academic understanding and appreciation of music theory, history, and technique.
Lianna earned a bachelor’s degree in Performance from Clayton State University (Morrow, GA), a master’s degree in Vocal Pedagogy from The Ohio State University (Columbus, OH), and is currently pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of Georgia (Athens, GA). While her doctoral studies hold much of her focus, choral singing, solo singing, and teaching also maintain their prominence in her schedule. Lianna’s adjunct faculty position at Oglethorpe University (Brookhaven, GA) as Affiliate Artist in Voice continues to nurture her passion for developing future artists.
