Carolyn Lykkemark is a singer/pianist and a voice teacher, teaching out of her home studio in Mississauga and at Merriam School of Music in Oakville. Originally trained in classical voice, she has since specialized in performing contemporary styles including musical theater and pop. Over the course of a career that has already spanned three decades, she has performed in operas, dinner theatre, solo concerts and festivals; in 2008 she released her debut CD, “Seeds Of Me”; and is in high demand as a singing teacher.
As a performer, Carolyn has created and produced a number of stage shows: MY LIFE IN ROOMS, THE DESPERATE DIVAS, JOY 2000!, THEATRE OF TRUTH, THE VOICE WITHIN and SAUCY WENCHES IN THE TRENCHES, which was showcased at the TORONTO FRINGE FESTIVAL in 2009.
In 2008, Carolyn released her long-awaited debut CD, SEEDS OF ME, at HUGH’S ROOM in Toronto. The album was recorded over a period of 10 years with a potpourri of provocative songs written by a bouquet of songwriters from Carole King and Jewel to Rogers & Hart and Stephen Sondheim, as well as some of her own. The accompaniment, intriguingly light and intimate, is simply keyboard or piano.
Although opera was not to be her passion, she thoroughly enjoyed wowing her audiences as Betsy in SWEET BETSY FROM PIKE (Cridgehall, Victoria), Tommie in THE INJUSTICE DONE TO TOMMIE TUCKER (University Theatre, Calgary), Carolina in THE SECRET MARRIAGE (University Theatre, Calgary), and St. Settlement in FOUR SAINTS IN THREE ACTS (Lyric Opera Theatre, Arizona).
Carolyn relocated to Toronto and began exploring all things non-classical. She collaborated with an array of musicians, exploring different genres of music: classic and contemporary pop, rhythm and blues, jazz and Broadway show tunes. This foray away from classical found her performing at STRATENGER’S , KOKOMOS, THE DUKE OF KENT, BONNY BRIAR’S, SPARKY’S, CAFÉ DES ARTISTES, JS SHANE’S and in the dinner theatre show, OFFICERS 1893.
In 1996, Carolyn moved to Mississauga, where she resides today. She has performed with a band at PK CREEK BAR & GRILL, ROC N’ DOCS, ROSCOE’S ROADHOUSE and JD's HIDEAWAY & GRILL; as a soloist at UNITY CHURCH OF MISSISSAUGA, while at the HERSHEY CENTRE, she sang the Canadian and American national anthems for the TORONTO THUNDERHAWKS professional indoor soccer club; as a singer/pianist she has performed at JONATHAN’S OF OAKVILLE, LOUISIANA’S SEAFOOD RESTAURANT, THE MOONSHINE CAFE and the STREETSVILLE ARTS FEST.
