Carolyn Black-Sotir is a gifted and versatile artist who enjoys one of the most fascinating and diverse careers imaginable.  Few possess her breadth of experience, talent and training. Whether it be as a singer, actress, writer, news journalist, stage director, teacher, or impressario, Carolyn is first and foremost a communicator.  She connects to her audiences—through her music, her written words, her interviewing skills, and her inventive and expressive stagings. She is a special person who embraces life and art with incredible passion and with a voice and musicality that touch the souls of others.

Carolyn’s ability to coexsist beautifully in both serious and popular music worlds is yet another example of her diverse talents. A classically trained musician, she is a magna cum laude graduate of Eastman School of Music with Bachelor and Master Music degrees in Vocal Performance.  She holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Voice Performance with a special concentration in Directing from University of Maryland.

Dr. Black-Sotir’s commitment to the arts extends beyond that of her own performances. Currently, she serves as Chair of the Baltimore County Commission on Arts and Sciences which provides more than 3 million dollars to arts organizations throughout the Greater Baltimore region. As an educator, she has taught and directed at Towson University and University of Maryland. She maintains a private voice studio and is in demand as a clinician, having conducted numerous master classes and workshops for young singers.
