About this event

Join us on Saturday, September 10, 2022 as we kick off our 2022-2023 season with USHA! The Music of my Life presented by Karen Usha, soprano!

Born and raised in Sri Lanka, Karen’s love for singing and stage performance began at a young age, she commenced her vocal education in her native land through the affiliated Royal and Trinity College Schools of Music, London, England. After immigrating to Canada, she pursued her vocal development through The Royal Conservatory of Music and Voice Performance, Faculty of Music, UofT.

Usha has held solo performances in Australia and New York. As Toronto is now home, she works for the Toronto Public Library, conducts vocal lessons and music programs to children with Autism and enjoys her collaborative work with local musicians, poets and authors.

Karen Usha also has a home catering service, a teenage son and a gorgeous pup!

George Elliot Clarke - world renowned Canadian poet, author, playwright and professor at the University of Toronto has said of Karen after a recent collaborative zoom performance, “Listening to that voice is to be at the Met - in one's own home!" 

Tickets are $35 or Pay What You Can and seating is General Admission.
