Carol Evans, Director of Music

Carol has served as Organist and Choir Director at Flourtown Presbyterian for 25 years.  Carol brings to our music ministry a passion to share the light of Jesus Christ, so that it may touch people's hearts as they hear the Word proclaimed through musical expression.  In addition to directing the adult, youth and bell choirs, Carol produces both a Lenten and Advent cantata each year.  Perhaps her most memorable contributions to our music ministry are the special theatrical events she has produced and directed, including Godspell, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Amahl and the Night Visitors, and a Madrigal dinner theater.  Carol is more than our Music Director ~ she is an inspiration, a mentor and a friend to all in our congregation. 

Carol is also Assistant Professor of Music at Gwynedd-Mercy College, and director of The Voices of Gwynedd.  Under Carol's leadership, The Voices of Gwynedd has developed into a highly professional choral ensemble presenting quality programs of many different genres. The Voices of Gwynedd have been invited to participate in high profile performances with international recording artists in both the pop and classical fields, including Barry Manilow, Linda Eder, Judy Collins, JoDee Messina and John Rutter conducting the magnificent Requiem by Mozart on the stage of Carnegie Hall. The Voices of Gwynedd has served as the opera chorus on numerous occasions for the award-winning American opera Vanqui.

In her free time, Carol enjoys spending time with the loves of her life, husband Leslie Burrs and daughter Aryssa.  They especially enjoy traveling on tour with the Voices of Gwynedd each year. 

Carol holds a Masters Degree in Vocal Performance from Temple University and a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from the Wheaton College Conservatory of Music.
