CONDUCTOR, KIKIMASU

Carmen So fell in love with the world of choral music at first sing, when she joined Kokopelli in 1997! 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 award-winning children's choir, Kikimasu. In her fifteenth year with the Edmonton Public School Board, she is currently the music specialist at Rutherford School. Ms. So attained her Bachelor of Music/Bachelor of Education combined degrees (2004) and 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, and has had the opportunity to study Dalcroze through Dalcroze Canada and the American Eurythmics Society. As a lifelong learner, she is always searching for opportunities to learn and adores all things involving creative pedagogical practices.
