MADISON CARTER, Mezzo-Soprano, first learned to sing and harmonize while a child and congregant in the Church of Christ, where singing in worship is completely a cappella. She did not learn to read music until high school when she joined choir for the first time. Since then, choral music was a hobby and passion that would undoubtedly turn into a career.
She attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) where she received her B.A. in Choral Music Education in 2017. While there, she was a member of the UAB Concert Choir and UAB Chamber Singers, both under the direction of Dr. Brian Kittredge. She also studied voice privately with Dr. Kristine Hurst-Wajszczuk.
Madison has held positions as a staff singer in several churches in the Birmingham area, including her current position as a staff alto at the Cathedral Church of the Advent. Before being hired at the Advent in 2015, she held a professional singing position with the Lake Junaluska Singers, based in North Carolina.
