A musical Salute
An octet from CES was on Sonoran Living Channel ABC15 on May 4th. We were promoting our Armed Forces Day concerts, honoring all our veterans. "A Musical Salute" is filled with patriotic music, a Civil Air Patrol Honor Guard, and a highly decorated retired Naval Pilot who flew in Vietnam. Veterans are invited to join us at no cost!
Choral music in Scottsdale
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. Come enjoy our Scottsdale choir soon!

The Joy of Music
Eynon made her mark on Arizona’s realm of choral music soon after she arrived from Michigan, where she spent 10 years choral directing at high schools. In 1995, she created the Arizona Arts Chorale. In 2007, she founded the Carolyn Eynon Singers, which currently has 22 volunteers. She also shares her voice in a church choir.
“I’m a pianist by profession, too, but when you play piano that’s you and the piano,” Eynon said. “When you’re singing, it’s your body. It’s your brain. It’s your vocal cords. It’s your instrument. I don’t think there’s anyone who would say that the human voice isn’t the most incredibly intimate instrument to make music.”
Her choral group continues Eynon’s commitment to perform works of female composers and her passion for the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s.
“I think North American music is just a unique opportunity to feature so many different composer styles,” Eynon said. “You can do everything from Broadway, to patriotic, to folk, to spirituals. I mean you’ve got it all here in our country. It’s wonderful.”
