Carla and Craig Torrey, Ocean City Jazz Festival Co-Chairs

Ocean City is rich in history. Carla’s ties to Ocean City go back to the days when her father, William Eaton, built houses in the newly formed community on Topsail Island. Her recent work led to the community’s inclusion on the North Carolina Civil Rights Trail, celebrated at the 2022 Ocean City Jazz Festival celebrated.

Carla says that “together we’re both working on making Ocean City Jazz Festival a pleasant experience.” She adds that “Craig reminds me that it should be like a small celebration at someone’s home.”
