Recent and upcoming solo highlights include the east-coast premiere of Caroline Shaw’s
“The Listeners”; Reema Esmail’s “This Love Between Us”, Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, B Minor Mass, St. Matthew Passion, St. John Passion, multiple art-song recitals, and countless Bach cantatas with Boston’s own Emmanuel Music; a revival of Francine Trester’s chamber opera about the life of Florence Price, “Florence Comes Home”; a world-premiere performance of Trester’s song cycle, “The Azure World,” written for Ms. Cheron, using the poetry of Tennyson; Trester’s “A Walk in her Shoes,” with Boston Landmarks Orchestra; a world premiere of Trester’s “In Her Element,” with the Kendall Square Orchestra; Vivaldi’s Gloria with Boston Baroque and Concord Women’s Chorus, and his Stabat Mater with Portland Bach Experience; an international solo debut with Skylark Ensemble at the Holy Week Festival at St. John’s, Smith Square in London, accompanied with a live on-air performance on BBC Radio 3’s program, “In Tune”; Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass, Mozart’s Requiem and Vesperae solennes de Dominica, Handel’s Israel in Egypt and Messiah, Vivaldi’s Dixit Dominus, Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil, and world premiere performances of jazz and cabaret songs by John Harbison, with the composer himself at the piano.

Carrie is featured as a soloist on all three of Skylark Ensemble’s Grammy-nominated albums, and performs the opening and title track of its most recent release, “La Vie en Rose.” She can also be heard as a soloist on Lorelei Ensemble’s recent recording of “Love Fail” by David Lang, and is featured on their upcoming recording of Jessica Meyer’s “I Long and Seek After.”

A dedicated educator, Carrie is an Associate Professor of Voice at Berklee College of Music, where she teaches healthy vocal technique of all genres.
