About “Two Halves of One Whole”
“Two Halves of One Whole” is a significant release for Kara as a musician. In addition to being her first EP, this recording also marks the end of her undergraduate studies in Minnesota and the beginning of her graduate studies in Miami at the renowned Frost Institute of Music. Her goal with this EP is to expand the taste of the listener while also representing two contrasting genres, jazz and classical, as accurately as possible as both a performer and a composer/arranger. As the title suggests, being able to appreciate and understand both of these genres of music is meant to contribute to a more complete or “whole” listening experience for her audience.
