About Carly 

I hail from the suburbs of Chicago where I began studying voice at the age of eleven. Growing up, music lessons were a magical privilege that I got to take part in once a week. I was exposed to music from all over the world in languages that were completely foreign to me. This is what sparked my interest in classical music. When I started lessons, I began singing lyrical musical theater. Musical theater was my first love and is still something I enjoy singing today. My teachers instructed me that the most important thing to learn was proper vocal pedagogy (vocal mechanics). With time and a lot of practice, I learned how to become the performer and teacher I am today.


Carly holds a Master of Music degree from New England Conservatory, where she was awarded the Helen Haxton Stare Presidential Scholarship.
