HYS - Carol Tsang - February 2016Performing music in youth orchestras has played an important role in Carol Tsang’s life from an early age, and to this day, music remains her passion. Carol started playing violin at the age of 8 and performed with the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra and the Oakland Symphony Youth Orchestra, where she had the opportunity to perform alongside world-renown musicians including Jennifer Koh, Julian Rachlin, Michael Tilson Thomas, and members of the San Francisco Symphony. She continued to play violin at Cornell University, where she was a member of the Cornell Symphony Orchestra for all four years.

Carol received her Bachelor of Arts degree in economics from Cornell University, and her Master’s degree in accounting from Vanderbilt University Owen Graduate School of Management. She is a Certified Public Accountant in the State of Hawaii. She volunteered for three years with the Alternatives Federal Credit Union in Ithaca, NY helping individuals in the community file their income taxes. She spent past summers teaching English to students in Hong Kong and working as an intern with Southwest Airlines in their tax department filing sales/use tax returns. From 2013 through 2016, Carol worked as an external auditor with Deloitte and Touche, serving clients in various industries including banking, state, construction, retail, and insurance.

Now, as Finance Manager of HYS, she is thrilled to be able to combine her background in accounting with her passion for music and music education.
