It's been a very looooong time. The last time I saw you was in Vegas, playing for Frank, Jr. at the Boulder Station. I believe it was in either '97 or '98. I moved to WA State in September of '98 and lost touch with…"
Carolena Mátus is a classically trained singer, with over 30 years of vocal experience, who spent the majority of her career living and performing in Las Vegas, Nevada. Making her first public appearance as a soloist at 7 years of age (piano and voice duo), she later went on to begin her formal vocal training at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas at the age of 13.
In childhood, Carolena developed a passion for big band JaZz due to her father's influence and while she was exposed to other genre's, her love of the standards stayed with her. Although her formative training and experience was based in opera, classical and musical theatre, in the mid-1980's she was introduced, through a friend and former band member, to Frank Sinatra, Jr. and her love of JaZz was reborn anew ...
Carolena has been strongly influenced by multiple exceptionally talented jazz musicians who are dear close friends, primary of whom is her cherished and beloved Joe Baque (superlative master pianist), as well as: Bobby Scann (trombone), John Stowell (guitar), Archie LeCoque (former lead trombone, Stan Kenton Orchestra), Herbie Phillips (trumpet / flugelhorn / arranger, unfortunately now deceased), the great Carl Fontana (trombone, unfortunately now deceased) and last, but certainly not least, Frank Sinatra, Jr., as it was he who re-introduced her to jazz.
When not busy performing she teaches in the Carolena Mátus Voice Studio, lending her 30+ year vocal expertise to beginning students in private sessions, encouraging their talent and musical self-confidence to grow in a safe, supportive environment. She also teaches singers with more experience who have either hit plateau's or who have sustained vocal injury due to lack of proper training, including actively performing professional singer/musician's in a variety of genre's.
