Karen Manley Kahler

Karen Manley Kahler resides in Belvidere and does a lot of performing in the Rockford area and can frequently be seen on stage at the amazing Starlight Theatre.  This summer, at Starlight, she is playing Donna in Mamma Mia running June and July.  Some of her all-time favorite roles include Eve in Children of Eden, Gertrude in Seussical the Musical, Mother in Ragtime, and Lily in Secret Garden.  Karen received her degree in Music Theatre from Illinois Wesleyan University and is thrilled to be able to do what she truly loves once in a while.

Karen works for her family's car dealership, Manley's Belvidere Ford Lincoln where she is heavily involved in coordinating efforts to raise money for nonprofit organizations and schools through Drive Events sponsored by Ford and Lincoln.  She also serves as music director at First Presbyterian Church in Belvidere.

Karen is so thankful to be singing once again with the DeKalb Municipal Band!
