Karen has just been awarded a Distinction in Trinity's LTCL Diploma (Licentiate of Trinity College London). This is a performance recital exam equivalent to an honours degree recital. All of Karen's exam repertoire was traditional material played in traditional style - the first time this has been achieved. Trinity's Chief Examiner in Music, Keith Beniston, commented that the oramentation was "characteristic and highly imaginative", with a "huge range of often complex rhythms in the accompaniments" and that the "techniques applied were advanced and challenging: even experimental".
