KAREN LARGE grew up in a small family that sang on long car rides or around the campfire on vacations. She chose the French horn to learn, but discovered that it was a complicated and cumbersome instrument to carry to and from school for three years, age 9-12. Piano required lots of practice, so that didn’t last. But singing in school, in full choir or small groups, was the best. She works hard with Diablo Women’s Chorale and reaps the benefit of being part of a great team who give super performances. WIth her addition to the Board in 2016, Karen hopes to make a contribution to the Chorale with her background in media/public relations and community groups.
