Karen Collins

Director

Karen Collins is a retired music educator who taught choral music in Montgomery County for 31 years. She has directed choirs and led worship at various churches throughout Montgomery and Howard counties. She is a Sweet Adelines International Certified Director.

Karen joined the Heart of Maryland in May 2005 and became director in November 2007. Her belief is that our singing can't just be about great barbershop vocal skills; it has to come from "within"! Otherwise, it will be just a performance, not the type of music that opens the heart and touches the soul!  We are delighted to have her as our director!
