Astrid Caruso-Lynch began singing in her mother’s choirs at the age of six and attended her first RSCM course at the ripe age of 10 years old. Since then, she has attended courses as a chorister or proctor almost every summer. A life-long lover of liturgy and church music, her experiences at RSCM and then as a chorister at Trinity Episcopal Church in Princeton, NJ led her to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Church Music & Organ Performance at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN. Since college, she has pursued a more administrative path, serving as a Parish Administrator and Communications specialist at various Episcopal churches. In December of 2021, Astrid completed a Master’s degree in Arts Administration at Indiana University in Bloomington, and is currently Constituency Relations Officer for the University of Washington School of Music in Seattle, WA.
