viola & backing vocals
Recently retired as the Director of Visual and Performing Arts for the San Diego Unified School District, Karen is a Washington state native with a BA in music (viola emphasis) and a masters in music education. She has performed in numerous symphonies and ensembles in Washington and California, including La Jolla Symphony, and sung tenor in City Limits, a San Diego barbershop quartet, that performed at Disneyland, Padre games, and the 1998 World Series. Not a back burner type, Karen jumps right in with both feet and keeps smiling. A refreshing and innovative team player, she brings achingly beautiful tones and a classic sensibility to Enter the Blue Sky, and is thrilled to be a member of the band.
