On Saturday, October 21, 2017 at 2:00 p.m., the Institute of Musical Arts welcomes back Storyteller Karen Golden in “Hot Pot and Other Savory Tales”, a solo performance of original stories. Karen Golden is a dynamic performer who delights even the most discriminating listener with an insightful blend of stories, music and philosophical musings about the great adventures of being human!
Her performance style is both playful and serious as she weaves in and out of animating different characters and sound effects, often mixing in several different musical performances, including the saxophone, recorder, accordion, ocarina, and even a singing bowl. She can keep the attention of 2-year-olds, grade school kids, teenagers, moms and dads, and senior citizens. Audience members always leave feeling completely entertained and inspired to make the world a better place.
Karen’s teaching work has touched the lives of thousands through her teaching artist residencies in schools, LAPD Pals Youth Centers for youth at risk and juvenile halls. She was the director of a storytelling summer camp at the Beverly Hills Library for three summers and the founder of the Peace Tellers Youth Storytelling Troop. She is currently a teaching artist with the Los Angeles County Arts Commission (LAartsed.org) and the founding director of Creative Learning Place (creativelearningplace.com), an academic and arts center for home-schooled children.
It’s been three years since she thrilled the IMA audience with “Love from Jewish Kitchens", so we’re glad to see her return.
