Composer Karen Siegel creates innovative, exciting, and meaningful choral and vocal works. Her works are frequently performed by C4: the Choral Composer/Conductor Collective, which she co-founded in 2005. Karen’s works are featured on albums by the Harmonium Choral Society, the Choir of Trinity College Melbourne, Tonality, and C4; and are published by See-A-Dot, Chestnutoak Press, and the Justice Choir Songbook. Recent commissions include the choral sound installation Lessons of Stone, for the Astoria Choir at the Noguchi Gallery in Long Island City; the feminist collaborative work Visions of Flight, for the Danish National Girls’ Choir and cellist Henrik Dam Thomsen; and the live remote choral project Reunion, which brought together Joyful Noise, Cambridge Common Voices, the Central Illinois Youth Chorus, and cellist Martin Laufhutte across six states. The latter work was part of Karen’s initiative to foster live remote choral singing during the isolation phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, composing commissions for the medium and leading workshops in online singing.
