Soprano Binkley has performed solos, oratorios and opera roles with the Lancaster Opera Company and Lancaster Symphony Chorus in Pennsylvania, and the Salisbury Chorale. She also placed in the top five in South Carolina at the 1996 Metropolitan Opera National Council auditions. Her favorite roles include Marguerite in Gounod’s Faust and Miss Silverpeal in Mozart’s The Impresario. Holding music degrees from Marantha Baptist University and Bob Jones University, she has taught music for nearly two decades.
