Karen E. Moorman earned a BA in music from UNC-CH and a MA in Liberal Studies from NCSU and has served as a lecturer in the Arts Studies Program at NCSU. Her academic treatises include: The Recitatives of the Late Beethoven String Quartets; Amy Beach: An American Composer; and Chaos Theory and Experimental Music: The Intersection of Two Avante-Gardes. With an interest toward educating young listeners, Moorman planned, coached students, and hosted Arts Now for Kids as part of the 2004 Arts Now Series directed by Dr. Rodney Waschka II at NC State University. She is a NEA Fellow (2008) of the Columbia University Arts Journalism Institute for Music and Opera.
A self-proclaimed late-bloomer Karen began her musical life as a singer, piano hack, and self-taught folk musician, and then later became a more dedicated student of the violin. As violinist and teacher she maintains a coaching studio in Durham. Along the way, thanks to word processing, the art of writing became a compelling interest. She regards the concert review as an educational tool; a means of communicating and inviting the public to become an integral part of the artistic community while too providing another frame of reference for artists and presenters.
