Since his debut with Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic in 1962, Karr has performed as soloist on six continents with orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Montreal Symphony, Simon Bolivar Orchestra (Caracas, Venezuela), Jerusalem Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, Zurich Chamber Orchestra, and with all the major orchestras of Australia.
The Kol Nidrei was the musical impetus that put Karr on the path toward a solo career. He first performed this music in a synagogue at the age of eleven and still considers it his most personal piece. Also includes performances of classical works by Bloch, Koussevitzky, Wilder and Bach.
