In this particular song, Mary Beth Carlson creates a consistent flow with an elegant, beautifully distinctive style that has become a best-selling “signature sound” throughout the country. Mary Beth passionately plays from the heart, whether it be romantic pop standards, inspirational arrangements, or original compositions inspired by people who have touched her life.
Mary Beth Carlson, composer, recording artist and former Teacher of the Year, performs nationally as a pianist and speaker for a wide variety of special events. As Lead Pianist at Nordstrom Mall of America for nearly 15 years, she managed piano entertainment for most of those years. Much of her original music has been composed in honor of her daughter Jody, who was born with cerebral palsy and autism.
She has written and performed music specifically for the International Special Olympics, Arc, Fraser Community Services, Children’s Cancer Research Fund, and the Alzheimer’s Association. “A Bridge Over Time,” the title song for one of Mary Beth’s albums, is featured on Lasting Memories, a fund raising project for the Minnesota Alzheimer’s Association, produced by Grammy Award-winning artist J.D. Steele.
