KAREN SCHULZ-HARMON
Karen Schulz-Harmon, a native of St. Louis, is an avid chamber musician and teacher. She performs with the Chicago Philharmonic, Chicago Bach Ensemble, Chicago Opera Theater, Chicago Trio and the Glass Cage String Quartet. She loves recording and collaborating with different composers and various instrumentalists. Karen is a member of the faculty at the Chicago Academy for the Arts (CAA) where she teaches private cello and music theory. She also coaches chamber music at both CAA and the Chicago Youth Symphony.
Her journey with music began at the age of seven when she started playing the piano and violin. At age 15 she switched to cello (the instrument she had wanted to play for many years) at the request of her high school orchestra director. Once she started playing the cello she immediately took off and knew it was the instrument she had been meant to play. After only a few years she was accepted into the St. Louis Youth Symphony and by her senior year in high school she was playing with the St. Louis Philharmonic. That year she also had the wonderful opportunity to play with the Opera Theatre St. Louis' Youth Opera Program, where she was the principal cellist for the the premiere of Joshua's Boots and the U.S. premiere of Brundibar.
Karen attended Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville, where she received a full scholarship to play in the honors string quartet. While there she was the principal cellist of the orchestra (four consecutive years), studied piano with Linda Perry, voice with Lori McCann and cello with Joseph Pival and Kangho Lee. Karen graduated with a major in Cello Performance and a minor in Piano Performance. Being so close to St. Louis, she continued to play in the St. Louis Philharmonic and studied with St. Louis Symphony cellists, Lowell Adams and Ken Kulosa. She also won an audition to play with the Bayerisch Opera Theater in Germany for two months and sat principal for The Barber of Seville, Rigoletto and Tosca.
...
Over the past few years Karen spent two months in Europe, which included observing the teaching (approximately 40 hours) of Robert Nagy, principal cellist of the Vienna Philharmonic.
...
Karen adores Vienna and cherishes the friendships she developed there.
In the summer of 2012 Karen was selected to attend the National Summer Cello Institute. While there she had the privilege to work with cellists Richard Aaron, Timothy Eddy, Ralph Kirshbaum and Uri Vardi. She also participated in an enlightening Feldenkrais workshop with Hagit Vardi.
Karen has been teaching both cello and piano for the past 21 years. She continues to teach private lessons from her studio located in the Fine Arts Building, as well as from her home studio in Chicago's historic Kenwood neighborhood. A pedagogue emphasizing both tradition and innovation, Karen works with students of all ages. She greatly appreciates passing on her knowledge of music, inspiring future (and present) generations of music lovers.
