Described as “colorful and at times groovy” (WQXR.org), Karen Siegel’s innovative music draws on her experience as a versatile vocalist.  Her works are frequently performed by the New York City-based ensemble C4: the Choral Composer/Conductor Collective, which she co-founded in 2005. Her choral work Saguaro was recorded by C4 and released on the album Volume 1: Uncaged in 2013. Why Do We Love Our Guns, her work for treble choir, was recorded by Tonality and released on the album Sing About It in 2019.  Karen’s opera The Hat: Arendt Meets Heidegger was premiered by the Thompson Street Opera Company in 2019.  Her works are published by See-A-Dot Music Publishing, self-published through Chestnutoak Press, and distributed in the Justice Choir Songbook.  Please find more at http://KarenSiegel.com/.
