Joy Shepard Baldridge (mezzo-soprano) began studying voice privately in high school and has worked with several excellent voice teachers. Her senior year in high school culminated in her winning of the Cecilia Schultz Voice Scholarship, which is adjudicated by the Seattle Opera. Since then she has performed professionally in a variety of local venues, from the concert stage and churches, to restaurants, graduation ceremonies, and other special events. Highlights of Joy’s singing career include singing the National Anthem for a Mariners game and performing five solos with the Pacifica Chamber Orchestra. Joy has put together several fundraising concerts in recent years, collaborating and performing with other local musicians.
Dan Munko (tenor) developed his love of music in high school through acting and singing in classic musicals like Oklahoma, The King and I and Guys and Dolls. He began vocal instruction shortly after college, sang with choral groups, and performed for the ‘CRA Players’ in a number of plays, musicals, and variety shows. After a long break from all things musical to raise a family, Dan began studying voice again. He currently sings solos for life celebrations, weddings, and other special occasions. Dan also sings with Breath of Aire, a choir that performs benefit concerts in the Puget Sound area as well as travelling concerts throughout the northwest and most recently Southern California and Mexico.
Andy Carr (piano) has been part of the Pacific Northwest music scene for 40 years, as accompanist/arranger for vocalists, choirs, and musical theatre; and as a jazz pianist with groups ranging from small combos to big bands. A 10-year resident of Camano Island, Andy maintains a busy schedule performing with ensembles around the North Sound, including TimE3 Jazz; Swingnuts Jazz; Seabreeze Jazz Band; A’Town Big Band; and The Fat Fridays. He is a founding member of Tangoheart, the Northwest’s premier tango ensemble.
