Carol Ledeboer Johnson

Carol Ledeboer has been employed by The Lodge providing easy listening grand piano music as “Ivory Perfume” for the past years, and has now combined talents with Sophie Thiel. Carol has performed in the Detroit Lakes area as a single show or as a duo called “The Gypsies”. In addition, Carol is a professional preschool teacher and has been engaging young children in dance, music and books with a show called “Miss Pockets.” The show provides for children a fun way toward literacy through music and sound effects.

Carol resides with her husband in Rushford MN during the winter months and spends summers here in the DL area. Her father and son Nate live in the Fargo-Moorhead area which is Carol’s original home. Nate works at the Hotel Donaldson and is an accomplished musician and painter.

On a chance visit to Ottertail Village, Carol heard Sophie singing in the Creamery Coffeehouse and this connection has led to Sophie being featured vocalist with Carol’s accompaniment including keyboard, piano and violin. Sophie is currently finishing a music video of her own composition, and now her original songs will be performed with Carol as accompanist.

Join us and hear the “Fragrant Melodies” of “Ivory Perfume featuring Sophie Thiel” at The Lodge on August 15 from 5-8 pm!

Sophie Thiel

Sophie Thiel began to pursue music as a teenager in choir, musicals, and other public events. From national anthems, to Christmas recording projects, she has stuck with her passion for music. She is currently in the studio working on an album project; a five song EP which will be released this summer 2013. Peter Thiel, her older brother, is producing her album project (Remnant Records). Her single, “You Know Me By Heart”, which came out this last November, will be the inspiring song for her first music video. Filming for the video will take place this summer as well.

Sophie is believing God for the finances to come through and for all her artistic endeavors in the future to flow smoothly. You can like her music page on Facebook (Sophie Elizabeth Thiel) as well as her modeling page (Sophie Thiel Modeling) to keep updated on her new music.
