While still in high school, studying with John Brock, Carolyn won the AGO’s Region IV Quimby Competition for Young Organists.

She can also be heard on the nationally syndicated American Public Media program Pipedreams. As a solo pianist, Carolyn has performed in Carnegie Hall as a winner of the American Protégé International Talent Competition, among other distinctions.
