Karen Kushner has appeared internationally in both solo (Carnegie Recital Hall; the Phillips Collection; the Deia Festival in Mallorca, Spain) and chamber music (Newport Music Festival; Strings in the Mountains; Music in Old Krakòw, Poland).

She has taught at the Mannes College of Music, and most recently, on the piano faculty at the conservatory at the University of Missouri at Kansas City.

Her diverse interests include art history (ancient Greek sculpture and Italian Renaissance painting), literature, classical ballet (Balanchine) and historical piano recordings.

Her solo recordings can be found on the Connoisseur Society (The Chopin Mazurkas), VAI (The Choral and Organ Music of Kevin Oldham), Albany (The Piano and Vocal Music of Kevin Oldham), and Epiphany (music of Chopin, Brahms, Liszt, Schumann, and Mendelssohn) labels.

Two recent CD releases of music for piano, four-hands with the late Igor Kipnis are available on the Parnassus and Palatine labels. In the spring of 2004, another Kipnis-Kushner CD will be released on the Palatine label comprised of music for four hands of Schubert and Brahms.
