Poet, composer, soprano, and multi-instrumentalist Carolyn Quick (b. 1994) has always had a love for poetry and has been writing for well over a decade. As she began to pursue a career in music, poetry served a vital role in the raw expression of her life experiences, free of stress and constraint.
She has set several of her poems to music in works such as: Pieces, Not I Alone, Stop the Clock (which blends her words with quotations from the 2018 Kavanaugh Hearings Transcripts), and To Breathe which sets two of her poems and was recently selected for the Eugene Opera's call for scores: Songs for Quarantine. At Art Song Lab, Carolyn participated in several poetry workshops offered by Trauma Head author Elee Kraljii Gardiner. She is published in the East County Poetry Group's recent publication East County Poetry: Lent 2019 - Epiphany 2020.
