The New Year and our music!

 The beginning of a new year is here and I have been visualizing 2013 as a year of peace, movement towards positive constructive change, health, much time with those you love and a year of creative inspirations fulfilled.

What's coming up in my world of music?
Mark your calendars for the first Casa Karen Concert of 2013!
