An accomplished soprano with the ability to transcend her classical training and bring her versatility to the genres of gospel, jazz and contemporary music. Karen is a music educator, vocal coach and thespian.
Themed “Music in the time of COVID-19: A Classical Soiree by Soprano Karen Usha”, Karen gave a live outdoor concert in a Toronto Summerhill neighborhood courtyard recently.
It was an opportunity to share her gift of music during these isolating times.
The event was conducted in an open courtyard, following social distancing guidelines. The audience members were those residing in the townhouse units, enjoying the live performance from the comfort of their balconies and entrance doorways, accompanied by wine and cocktails! These opera buffs were treated to arias from well-known operas and lighter pieces from Broadway Musicals. Karen ended her performance with Shubert’s, Ave Maria, warming the hearts of her audience on a very chilly night.
Karen is the daughter of the late Mahesh Sabaratnam, triple star sportsman: Rugby CR & FC and Kandy Lake Club, Heavyweight lifter and boxer.
