Karen FitzGerald - Biography

Karen FitzGerald
Contemporary instrumental performing and recording artist Karen FitzGerald brings together a classically trained technique with a deeply personal musical intuition that comes straight from the heart. Her solo piano compositions range from delicate and soothing to passionate and soul-stirring, evoking the beauty of nature, the subtle shades of human emotion and a longing for spiritual wholeness. According to her hometown newspaper, the Bellingham Herald, "Her soaring compositions are reminiscent of snowstorms and waterfalls. That piano held special fascination for Karen, and at the age of five, she begged her parents for lessons, which initiated twelve years of traditional piano studies emphasizing the classics, music theory, composition and performance. She graduated with honors from the Wilmington Music School in her hometown in Delaware. In college, Karen majored in Physics and Mathematics, but when she needed a break from her studies, she once again found herself drawn to the piano. As she released pent up feelings at the instrument, she learned how to improvise, and began creating her own distinctive musical vocabulary. Karen then moved to Northwest Washington where she spent the next fifteen years working as a computer programmer. Early in this time period, she discovered several pianists who affected her deeply. "The music of Keith Jarrett opened my mind and expanded my horizons in the world of improvisation. But it was the simple, lyrical lines of George Winston that changed my life and got me started on my path of piano composition. Liz Story 's music was inspirational as well, and her presence as a successful woman pianist-composer provided me with an invaluable role model." The first fruit of this musical exploration was Karen's 1987 cassette release , Turquoise Flame. In 1990 her piece, "Remembering" was selected as a winner in the Songwriter's and Musician's Foundation song contest, and in 1994 her piece, "Summer Rain" was featured on a seamless connection , a compilation album of top Northwest Washington songwriters. In 2001, Karen collaborated with cellist Janet Peterson of Motherlode to create music for a local production of The Vagina Monologues . In 2002, Karen's piece "Lullaby" was released by Spring Hill Music on The HeartAid Project , a 9/11 solo piano benefit compilation. Karen currently performs with the vocal ensemble, Calyx, and her piano work appears on their 2006 release, Sweet Life . aren is also experienced in accompanying solo performers, and her playing is featured on folk singer-songwriter Linda Allen 's 1991 release, Washington Notebook. Recently, Karen's music has begun to find its way into film and television, including The Oprah Winfrey Show and Best Week Ever , as well as background music for numerous promotional videos and web sites. She can be heard on a number of Internet broadcasts, including the popular Whisperings Solo Piano Radio show. With her second solo CD, Cascade , in the planning stages, Karen FitzGerald is poised for further expansion in her musical career. Copyright © 1999-2009 by Karen FitzGerald. All rights reserved.
