Arrangements by Carolyn 

Current Arrangements

 

Below is a list of all my current arrangements.  Please contact me if you have any questions or if you need assistance in selecting music appropriate for your situation.  Most of my arrangements have been sung by either my chorus or chapter quartets, so I am aware of how suitable they are for either size group. I have included a key at the bottom to help identify the type of song, and I hope this is helpful to you.

For singers' convenience, learning tapes have been made for many of my arrangements. Although I may be unaware of additional learning tapes,  I have indicated those arrangements for which Larry Wright (LWrightMus@aol.com), Kim Kraut (www.KimKraut.com), Tim Waurick (timi1015@aol.com) Shayna Atkinson  (shaynasings@hotmail.com) or I have 4-part learning tapes.
