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 sang baritone with Brocade for many years. In 2009 she made her debut as a bass singing with The Four Baris, placing fourth in Regional Competition. In addition, 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 Sweet Adeline members.
In 2003, 2005 and April 2007, Carolyn added the title "Championship Director" to her resume when Hickory Tree Chorus won first place medals in the Greater New York Region 15 Competitions. 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 33 year record of top-3 finishes and their unique repertoire of entertaining music in the barbershop style.
