Karen has extensive experience as a church musician, both as soloist and director, in churches in Maine and New York. She also works as a Clinician, designing and leading Retreats and Workshops for both choirs and individual singing participants.
Karen has studied with retired Metropolitan Opera coach Millard Altman since 1996.
