Carol Pemberton

 

As founder of Black Voices, Carol has used her diverse musical experience in developing the group’s artistic mission. Like many of the singers she looks up to, her first musical experiences were nurtured in the black church where her father was the minister. Carol plays cello, piano, saxophone and a variety of wind instruments – but she admits it’s the beauty and range of the unaccompanied voice that moves her most. « When Black Voices speaks through the power of unaccompanied voices and in the black oral tradition, you see and feel the messages being received – to any audience ». Carol was awarded a MBE in 2014 for her services to music.
