The Lundon Family

Jodi is a resident of Naples, FL, sprouting from the Northeast. Most recently, Jodi has been taking social-distancing to a whole new level. She has been performing during COVID-19 from poolside areas singing up to the balconies of numerous high-rise condominiums on the Gulf, maintaining that music is healthful to the soul and spirit and gives a sense of normalcy to the otherwise atypical circumstances we are facing today. It gives her great pleasure to transport her audiences and impart her singing and passion to people who just want to laugh again or sing along with a tuneful melody. Jodi was the headline performer for the 2020 Christmas Tree Lighting concert on 5th Avenue in Naples. 


Jodi is a communicator of music and this charismatic strength shows in all of her performances.


Her success has brought her from the rural areas of Maine to the throws of Europe, concertizing and performing lead roles in Opera, most successfully in Italy. Other performances have transpired in France, Ireland, Germany, Austria and the Philippines. Jodi will be performing on Marco Island February 8th for the Historical Society for the second season. Be sure to attend this wonderful concert!

As a proud son of Naples and native of Southwest Florida, Stephen J. Parker is honored to be a featured soloist with the Naples Concert Band.  Parker is a graduate of the acclaimed Interlochen Arts Academy (MI) in 1979 and earned Bachelor of Music degrees in Saxophone Performance and Music Education from Northwestern University (IL) in 1985. His musical mentors and instructors have included legendary conductors Frederick Fennell, William Revelli, John Paynter, Keith Lockhart of the Boston Pops, Jahja Ling of the Florida Orchestra, Margaret Hillis of the Chicago Lyric Opera Chorus, and world-renowned saxophonist Frederic Hemke. With 35 years of local and national experience as a professional conductor, performer and adjudicator, Steve Parker brings to the Cambier stage a vibrant and illustrious history of both instrumental and vocal performance in secular and sacred settings.
