Carolyn Jean Smith grew up in New York City and studied recorder there
as a child. She moved to Boston in 1983 to pursue a BS in Biology at
MIT. After working in research for several years, she returned to
school to pursue her lifelong love of recorder. She completed her
Master of Music degree in Early Music at the Longy School of Music in
May 1999. She has performed with Stambandet, Serendipity and Cantata a
Trois, and is currently a member of Quilisma. Carolyn has studied with
Ford Weisberg, Sonja Lindblad and John Tyson, and has done
masterclasses with Michael Lynn, Gerd Lunenberger, John Tyson and Paul
Leenhouts. She has participated in the Oberlin Performance Institute
and the International Baroque Institute at Longy, has performed in the
Society for Historically Informed Performance (SoHIP) Concert Series,
the MIT Chapel Concert Series, the Noon Concert Series at Cathedral
Church of St. Paul, the Gardner Museum Concert Series, and at First
Night Boston, and has been heard on WGBH's Morning Pro Musica with
St?mbandet. She can be heard on Nordic Voices, a CD released in 1997
by Stambandet under the Nordic Sounds label.
Somerville resident Julia Tenney is still recovering from a degree in
Art History. After decades of vague praise for her "serious" work, and
gushing approval of her doodles, she's begun to catch on. She is
making slow progress with a "serious" tarot deck, but within months
managed to complete a full deck of Surly Pink Bunnies.
