Alto Section Leader Carrie Biesiadecki loves singing- her first on-stage performance was “Wide Open Spaces” in her third grade talent show, and she has never looked back! Carrie is a mom to 3 year old and 1 year old daughters, and her husband Todd is a musically-gifted engineer who she has been with since 8th grade. Carrie’s background is in choral music and elementary music education, and she has taught publicly and privately since 2012. Carrie currently owns, operates and teaches for @halfpintharmonies, a music center that offers early childhood music and movement classes. She has a degree in music education from Schwob School of Music in Georgia and hopes to pursue her masters in choral conducting in the years to come.
Carrie began singing with PCS in 2014 and was a soprano core singer for three years until she started her family, and has been an active board member and singer since. Along with being alto section leader, Carrie is especially looking forward to assisting with conducting the choir this year. She’s also excited for our fundraising event, Intermezzo! “Our fundraising events have always been one of my favorite nights of the year- live vocal music in an intimate setting, good food, good wine, good folks to talk to…what more could you ask for? But Intermezzo is gonna take it up a few notches and I can’t wait to experience it! Plus…everyone needs a little Billy Joel sung into their life!”
When asked about the importance of community music, Carrie said the following “Community and music are almost synonymous. Music is such an integral part of the human experience, you can’t separate the two. Because, even when one is playing their instrument alone in their room for only their own ears to hear, the music transcends them to a place of togetherness. Whether that togetherness is felt spiritually or in a memory or fantasy.”
