About the Arranger
Carolyn has been an enthusiastic member of Sweet Adelines and the Hickory Tree Chorus since 1974. Although her formal education includes degrees in mathematics and computer science, Carolyn's passion for music has woven its never-ending thread thoughout her life. She has honed musical talents through years of piano lessons, an unofficial music minor in college and extensive musical instruction in vocal techniques, arranging and directing through Sweet Adelines International.
An avid quartet singer with two Region 15 Champion Quartets -- Sound Express (1978) and City Lights (1985), she's sung baritone with Brocade since 1990. She served as Region 15's Director of Musical Activities from 1987-1990. The ongoing need for quality quartet and chorus arrangements prompted Carolyn to become a Certified Music Arranger, a title held by only 20 of 30,000 Sweet Adeline members.
In March of 2003, Carolyn added the title "Championship Director" to her resume when Hickory Tree Chorus won first place medals in the Greater New York Region 15 Competition. In April of 2000 Carolyn achieved the level of Master Director in SAI's Director Certification Program. Carolyn is proud to have contributed to Hickory Tree's 25-year record of top-3 finishes and their unique repertoire of entertaining music in the barbershop style.
