Our bass section provides the foundation for the entire ensemble. It’s truly special to hear a powerful bass section, and we are pretty sure this year’s section will not disappoint!

It has been a privilege since my first rehearsal with the Carolyn Eynon Singers 8 years ago to sing with this talented group of people. As a singer, I find the music enjoyable, inspiring and, yes, often challenging, but it is rewarding to be a part of creating something of beauty with each concert we bring to our audiences.
As a native to Phoenix, I grew up and attended schools here. Although I was not in my high school choir, my choral music experience got off to a good start in a teen church choir, under the capable directing of Arlyn Brewster. Under her leadership I learned what it was to be a part of a group that sings well and pursues excellence in choral music. The traveling we did as a choir provided terrific opportunities for this young singer and I will always be grateful to Arlyn for these experiences. I have enjoyed singing with other choirs at Pacific Christian College, Glendale Community College and Arizona State University and currently sing in the choir at Chaparral Christian Church.
The pride and joy of my life are my three grown children, Adam, Andrew and Angela, all living here in the valley.
As for employment, I am the Asst. Controller for Russell Sigler, Inc., a wholesale distributor in the HVAC industry, where I have been for 19 years.

Rex and Kathy Salthun were drawn to Arizona first by their adult children and grandchildren. Christmas & Easter visitors since 2006, ‘snowbirds’ since 2009, and permanent residents since 2013, they now call northeast Phoenix home.
A native of Davenport, Iowa, he loves to sing and remarks, “Singing is what feelings sound like.” He also states that, “Singer or listener, music provides humor, sorrow, peace, and when we are wounded, the suspension of our pain.”
In his second year with the Eynon Singers, the retired insurance agent says he loves singing, fishing and golf (in that order). However, he further states, “For someone who’s been in choirs since Sunday school, I should be a whole lot better than I am.”
He asserts also, “We are an energized, cohesive group this year, and with what Carolyn chooses for us to sing and the techniques she imparts, we are able to accomplish something we could never do individually.
