On Deck with Kara Taylor
Amy Faust chats with multi-instrumentalist and composer Kara Taylor. A music lover since birth, Kara took up the piano at the ripe old age of 3 so that she could accompany her own singing. She has since added violin and saxophone to her repertoire, as well as the flute, which she currently plays with Metropolitan Youth Symphony. At 14, her vocal chops landed her the role of the shepherdess in Opera in the Park’s 2018 performance of Tosca.
While in quarantine, she misses playing for her school band (Valley Catholic) and performing with the Pacific Youth Choir, but she has made the most of it by composing original choral pieces, recording every single part herself and then mixing them into lovely little masterpieces.
