Carolyn Eynon Singers ~ Phoenix, AZ
Over the past 10 years, the 24 voice Carolyn Eynon Singers have entertained for Veterans, Rotarians, Retirees, children schools, charities, sporting events, all along with a 6 concert series each year. This up-coming season provides outstanding North-American 20/21 century compositions, featuring 3 Arizona women, 2 world premieres, and collaboration with the Camerata Singers from Prescott, accompanied by members of the Four Season Orchestra in March. To celebrate the finale of 2017, CES has accepted an invitation to perform at Carnegie Hall in June, 2017 a great inspiration to our outstanding volunteer singers, whom I'm proud to conduct.
Choral music is my passion for the art creates community. We all need music in our lives and singing together connects people. In my lifetime, this is the most vulnerable, emotional time in our country since my memory of post Viet Nam War. Music soothes, heals, and crosses borders.
