Mandy Cengiz, soprano
A native of Springfield, Missouri, Mandy Cengiz has been a member of CCA since 2013 — promptly after moving to Chicago — and joined the Board of Directors in 2014. Prior to this, she was section leader in the Springfield Chamber Chorus for five years.
Outside of CCA, Mandy has worked in mortgage and finance for 11 years and is prone to give Ella a run for her money with post-work jazz outbursts. A self-avowed wine and chocolate fiend, she is also a proud mom to her two children, aged five and seven.
