Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, Carolyn grew up seated in the choir loft of a church where music played an integral part of her spiritual exploration and development. While it wasn’t until later that she found her true voice, she spent years surrounded by powerful voices that conveyed strength, heritage, history and a sense of community and purpose.

In her current role as Music and Arts Director at the Common Street Spiritual Center located at 13 Common Street, Natick, MA.  A large part of Carolyn's personal mission is supporting and promoting positive social change, personal growth and healing thru music and creativity.  She continues to believe that music is a powerful tool which can be utilized to nurture, bring together and build community and seeks ways to bring this vision to life.

Healing Voices is an ongoing music initiative at Common Street created to provide a safe, open, nurturing place where those who love to vocalize, those shy about their voices and those who have lost their voices along the way come together to sing, have fun and let their voices be heard.

We meet every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month in the Common Street Sanctuary from 7:30 to 8:30 and in our time together, we take the opportunity to explore and strengthen our voices and build our community through vocal exercises and song.  You can attend as often or as little as you’d like.  The door is always open!
Open Choir is a new initiative which will be beginning in the Fall of 2015.  Understanding that schedules are busy and regular practices and rehearsals can be difficult, we're making it easy.  Focused on creating an impromptu choir, once a month every and anyone is invited to join us at 9:15 to learn a song or two to share at the service beginning at 10:30.  We will learn and share secular, non-secular, contemporary music that aims to uplift the spirit and create a meaningful worship experience. 
Come join us!
