Karen Diket

Music of Oz program manager

Karen Diket is a musician, music educator, and avid reader.  She joined the International Wizard of Oz Club recently, but has long been a supporter of Oz through assisting her son, David Diket in setting up many library displays of their Oz collection.  As president of a local Sigma Alpha Iota chapter, Karen organized a Doctors Talent Show to raise funds for the local university auditorium renovation fund.  This event allowed musically talented medical professionals to share their love of music with the community.
 
 
Karen helped to organize two local Oz events: Oz Con South 2016 and Oz on the Bayou 2017.  In 2016 she performed at Oz Con South with the Bayou Saxophone Ensemble, where they played Jazz favorites and a Wizard of Oz Suite.  She regularly performs with this group for local festivals, fund raising events, parties, and at nursing homes.
