original tunes by kara arena

As a singer-songwriter, I got my start working on my own material when I was selected to be a part of the two-year songwriting workshop course offered through The Boston Conservatory at Berklee. You can find my live recordings and demos on Soundcloud . 

I've composed original folk music for productions of TWELFTH NIGHT, ROMEO AND JULIET, MUCH ADO, and ANTIGONE through Rude Grooms, 7 Stages Shakespeare Company, and The Gilbert Theatre.

I'm working on releasing a solo EP in the coming year.
