Carmen So fell in love with the world of choral music at first sing! Experiencing human connection through voices in harmony inspired her to pursue a career in music education. Ms. So is the founding director of Kokopelli's children's choir, Kikimasu, which was featured in a spotlight concert at the national PODIUM Conference in 2016. In her eleventh year with the Edmonton Public School Board, she is currently the music specialist at Rutherford School. Ms. So attained both her Bachelor of Music/Bachelor of Education combined degrees (2004) and a Master of Education degree specializing in Elementary Music (2015) from the University of Alberta. She holds level III certification in both Kodály and Orff Schulwerk. As a lifelong learner, she is always searching for opportunities to learn and adores all things involving creative pedagogical practices. Carmen currently serves on the board of Choir Alberta and the Alberta Kodály Association.
