Having learned to play the piano at a very young age, she was teaching and performing before high school. She has served as organist, choir director and music director in a variety of religious denominations. She has directed school choirs  and also performed in musical theatre, orchestra and concert venues. A graduate of the University of Minnesota, she has worked outside of music in the fields of public relations, genealogy, writing and promoting Waldorf Education.  

Carol-Jean seeks to exercise creativity and craft to praise God in new ways. She especially enjoys finding ways to use everyone’s musical talents, whatever they may be.

Carl Sokol at the piano

Carl Sokol has been accompanying the choir at Christ Church United Methodist since the fall of 2001. He has derived great joy from playing all kinds of hymns since he was a young boy growing up in a one-room, wood-paneled Friends Meeting House in the rural area of Unadilla, New York. He often sings a special song or joins with other musicians adding meaningful music to our Christ Church service.

He uses his musical talents in many ways in Sonoma County, including accompanying movement classes at various schools, directing the music for theatre productions, and playing special music for other community events.
