REGINA CARTER's career has been a veritable crescendo of success that shows no sign of letting up. Over the past seven years, Carter and her group have brought audiences to their feet with exhilarating performances worldwide.
Carter's education at prestigious institutions such as the New England Conservatory, master classes with violin giants Itzhak Perlman and Yehudi Menuhin, and her association as a member of the Detroit Civic Symphony Orchestra and with the pop-funk group, Brainstorm, provided her with the experience needed to play with a range of artists, such as Ray Brown, Dolly Parton, and Billy Joel. Carter and her band also performed a special engagement with the Boston Pops, featuring classical virtuoso Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and celtic star Eileen Ivers. Together, the three violinists debuted a song written especially for them by Chris Brubeck, entitled "Interplay."
Just as prolific as her accomplishments on stage are Carter's performances on record. Included in her discography are recordings with Patti Labelle, Mary J. Blige, trombonist Steve Turre, pianists Kenny Barron and Danilo Perez, Quartet Indigo, and the String Trio of New York. Currently, Carter has five discs under her own name, including I'll Be Seeing You: A Sentimental Journey, on which Carter pays homage to her late mother by performing music from the '20s, '30s, and '40s.
