Linda Holland Roberts
Linda Holland Roberts, a pianist and organist, was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida. In 1972 she completed a B.Mus.Ed. at Southern College of Seventh-day Adventists, now Southern Adventist University, and then taught at Enterprise academy in Kansas for a year. She married Eldon Roberts in December 1973.
Though she now serves as secretary for Women’s Ministries in the Georgia-Cumberland Conference, Roberts continues to compose and teach private piano lessons. With her husband, she co-wrote the theme song for "Festivals of Faith" in the 1970s. Roberts’ music was recorded by Phyllis Galbraith in 1986, and in 1995 she published a book, Memorable Baby Dedication Songs. The 80-page spiral book has 26 songs with themes that correspond to Kay Kuzma’s baby dedication materials. More recently, she has been commissioned to write theme songs for retreats and personalized wedding and anniversary music as well as music for children’s choirs and other groups and events.
