Praised for her “sizeable voice that captured all of the vacillating emotions” (The New York Times), Karen Slack is "not only one of the nation's most celebrated sopranos, but a leading voice in changing and making spaces in classical music" (Trilloquy). A recipient of the 2022 Sphinx Medal of Excellence, Slack is a sought-after collaborator, curator and artistic advisor known for her fiery charisma and groundbreaking approach to engagement.

Highlighting Slack’s 2024-2025 season is the nationwide tour of her new commissioning project, African Queens, a recital of new art songs by Jasmine Barnes, Damien Geter, Jessie Montgomery, Shawn Okpebholo, Dave Ragland, Carlos Simon and Joel Thompson. She stars in the world premiere Geter’s Loving V. Virginia with the Virginia Opera and Richmond Symphony, appears in Minnesota Opera’s production of The Snowy Day and performs with the Fresno Philharmonic. In July 2024, she releases her debut commercial recording, Beyond the Years, alongside pianist Michelle Cann and ONEComposer on Azica Records.

#KikiKonversations is a Facebook live talk show that premiered on Thursday, April 23, 2020. #Konvos was an idea born at my dinning room table 2 months into the pandemic as a way for artists and industry leaders to connect during this time when we’d been hit with devastating loss in our industry due to Covid-19.
