Meet Carolyn Wehner, Pianist and Vocalist. As both a singer/pianist and solo pianist, Carolyn is an exceptionally versatile musician who has earned a reputation as a polished performer dedicated to providing distinctive live music for your upcoming event.
Hoping to find just the right mix of traditional and contemporary songs for your wedding ceremony? Trying for that elusive blend of uptempo jazz, romantic ballads and classical piano favorites for your cocktail reception? Want to include special musical requests for a milestone birthday or anniversary celebration? How about an after-dinner cabaret show personalized to fit the theme of your corporate event? Carolyn’s performances have enhanced these events and more, and her calendar includes regular appearances at some of the finest venues in Wisconsin and greater Chicagoland. In the Milwaukee area she appears regularly at The Wisconsin Club and plays occasional dates at The Lobby Lounge of the Pfister Hotel. You may also remember her from longtime engagements at The Boulevard Inn and Karl Ratzsch’s Restaurant. Her Lake Geneva dates include ongoing weekly appearances at The Baker House as well as a six-year engagement at The Geneva Inn were she was featured as house singer/pianist. Recent Chicago appearances include numerous private and corporate engagements (The Drake Hotel, Hotel Intercontinental, The Ritz-Carlton) as well as onstage dates at the Victory Gardens Biograph Theatre, Skokie Theatre and Davenports.
Carolyn’s always expanding repertoire as both a singer/pianist and solo pianist includes jazz standards (Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Diana Krall), romantic ballads (Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole), Broadway show tunes, pop classics (Carole King, The Carpenters, Elton John, Billy Joel) and light classical selections. All piano/vocal selections can also be performed as piano solos when your event calls for ambient background piano music only. And for holiday events Carolyn offers a full selection of Christmas music. Her wedding repertoire consists of classical favorites, traditional sacred music and contemporary Christian, as well as selections from her regular repertoire when permitted by your church. She is always happy to learn special requests to personalize your wedding music selections.
No matter how large or small your occasion, you deserve the finest music performed by an experienced professional who sincerely enjoys her role of enhancing your day.
Carolyn will perform on your venue’s piano, or if there is no piano on site a high quality portable digital piano can be provided.
