Carly performs one of her original compositions

Carly McIlvaine has the voice of an Angel. With her years  of classical voice training she is able to sing music from Baroque to Opera to Jazz to current pop and musical theatre ballads. She bills herself as an "Adult Contemporary" artist, specializing in "Classical Pop" music. We at Entertainers Plus would prefer to call her a Disney "Princess!"

Carly earned a B.A. in Music from American University and a Masters Degree in Liturgical Music from Catholic University, both in Washington, DC. After teaching music in private and international schools, Carly returned to graduate school, where she earned a Masters Degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Carly also attended an intensive songwriting workshop at Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Currently, Carly is a professional member of the National Chorale, performing regularly in Lincoln Center New York City. She has been touring since the summer of 2008 in her own programs entitled, "Opera in the Galleries." In these "Opera in the Galleries" concerts she performs popular opera arias, power ballads, and her own compositions in art galleries in coastal New Jersey and New England. Carly successfully released her debut CD of her own song compositions in January of 2009. Fans are impressed with her lyrics, her voice, and the facinating way that she combines classical instrumentation with pop melodies. Carly is a songwriter member of ASCAP and a member of the Songwriters Guild of America.

The clarity and expansive range of Carly's voice sets her apart from other pop and classical singers. She is equally comfortable singing in the concert hall as she is in the coffee house, bar, or cabaret theater. 

Carly sings with backup tracks, or with a guitarist and keyboard player, in addition to background orchestration for added atmosphere. Carly plays guitar & flute in addition to singing.
