  • Shared voices

    Karen Bear began singing when she was 12 years old.

    “I fell in love with Barbra Streisand...” Bear said. “I would sing for hours to her records.”

    Bear’s love for music and singing led to a degree in voice performance and music education and 20 years as a choral director.

    And Bear will soon share her vocal training and choral directing experience with the community as the director of The Licking Valley Singers.
