Julie Penner

Julie Penner, daughter of Pastor Elwood and Doris Boyd, grew up in a family of singers that includes four brothers and a sister. Instilled deeply within her is a love for music and for sharing it with others.  

 

Her education includes a Bachelor degree in Vocal Education from the University of Idaho in Moscow, a Master of Music in Vocal Performance and Literature at Eastman School of Music, Rochester, New York and a Doctor of Arts in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy at the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley.  

 

Since 1993 Julie has been the Director of Vocal Studies at Southern Adventist University.  Along with teaching, she is active as a soloist and has performed nationally and internationally.  Julie is happily married to Douglas Penner and enjoys sharing outdoor activities with him by horse or by foot, as well as traveling together with their delightful dog Nahla.
