Her concert work started with Singing For Victory - Songs of WWII, a show which is very dear to her heart. When she was growing up she listened to her family's recordings from the 1940s and always felt strongly drawn to that era. Karen realized how vital this music was in our country's history and the importance it had in keeping spirits high while so many were sacrificing so much. She was determined to not let this music be forgotten. This concert is dedicated to her family members who have served our country and all those who have given of themselves to protect our freedom.
From performing Hamlet with Shakespeare in the Park, to being the "voice" of a new Frito-Lay potato chip, to singing concerts in performing arts venues and cabarets worldwide, Karen always brings panache and professionalism to her work … and the magic relationship with a live audience is always a thrill for her!
