Chocolate & Vanilla’s musical genre includes gospel and oldies. They have been playing together since 2009; returning to perform for our ADA celebration for a second year.Carrie is a local artist hailing from Stamford, Texas. She began playing a Baldwin upright piano at age 3 by matching the piano key notes to that of a Christmas Car-oling Teddy Bear. From age 6-18, Carrie took private, “Playing by ear” lessons from Louise Lester, who taught in the Stamford area well into age 90. Ms. Lester never charged Carrie’s parents for the lessons because she considered Carrie to be a personal growth challenge for herself.Chocolate & Vanilla played for a music ministry at a local church. They are often invited to play for weddings and various parties. During the last year they performed at Black History Month at the Abilene Civic Center Talent Show.
