Director – Carrie Marcotte

Carrie Marcotte

Carrie Marcotte has been the director of the West Towns Chorus for ten years. She has led us to the Illinois District Barbershop Chorus Championship three times (2014, 2017, and 2021), the Chorus “Most Improved Chorus” award (2016), the “Most Entertaining Chorus” award (2015), and a wild card invitation to the Barbershop International Chorus contest in Orlando (2018). She brings lots of talent, energy, and fun to our rehearsals.

Carrie holds a Bachelor of Music degree in piano performance from Western Michigan University and a Master’s degree in Music and Liturgy, with a voice emphasis, from Saint Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, IN.

Carrie serves as the full-time collaborative pianist for the eight curricular choirs at Waubonsie Valley High School in Aurora, is the Music Director at Woodridge United Methodist Church, and co-organist for the Chicago Blackhawks! In her “free” time she sings with the two-time Illinois District Mixed Quartet Champion quartet: Mixology.

Carrie is the proud parent of two boys, Jacob and Lucas.

Carrie Marcotte is honored to be a member of the West Towns Chorus family and looks forward to many more great things to come.
