Opera Voice, Singing

About Me

Nothing gives me greater pleasure than singing. I consider it an enormous privilege to help you channel your creative expression through your unique instrument: all singing is based on a freedom from muscular tension, and I can help you find that no matter the genre. I have an extensive background performing in churches as well and am familiar with sacred choral repertoire; if you are looking for help making singing with your church choir an easier and joyful experience I can aid you with proper breathing and specific rehearsal techniques. As a former child actor myself, if you're looking for a leg up as you audition for school musicals I can offer feedback, encouragement and instill confidence in you or your child.

*** Lesson Details ***
We'll spend the first couple lessons focusing on breathing, spending time to anatomically understand how the body uses airflow. We'll work on loosening body tension and muscular tightness, then introduce vocal exercises that will build on your new sense of bodily ease and comfort. After that foundation, we can begin working on whatever repertoire you want to focus on, whether upcoming church music, your school's musical theater production, or traditional early Italian arias. I have extensive experience in all the major singing languages and will help you confidently sing works written in French, German, Italian, and Spanish, and Latin.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will travel to your home to conduct all lessons. A piano or keyboard- even a really modest one!- is necessary, along with a little bit of room to move around. If you do not have a keyboard it is possible to have lessons at a different location- talk to me and we can work out the details.

*** Specialties ***
During my time at Eastman and since then at UM I have performed with a variety of ensembles, in pieces ranging from Baroque opera to new chamber works by cutting-edge composers. I am thoroughly familiar in operatic history and 19th and 20th century western art song, and I can coach French, German, Italian, and English lyric diction. I am also familiar with the popular American songbook and Broadway musicals, and sacred choral music.

About Me

Mezzo-soprano Katherine C. is one of the most promising young talents on today’s opera scene. She created the role of the Young Nun in the world premiere of Stephen Hartke’s The Greater Good during Glimmerglass Opera’s 2006 Festival Season, which was later recorded on the Naxos label, and recently returned to the company as Aglaonice in the critically acclaimed production of Philip Glass’s Orhpée. She recently made role debuts with much acclaim as Hansel in Hansel and Gretel at the Syracuse Opera (where she will be awarded the comprimari “Artist of the Year” in 2009) and as Siebel in Faust with Princeton Music Festival.

Most recent noted engagements include a role debut as Sesto in Giulio Cesare and Un Musico in Manon Lescaut at the Florida Grand Opera, mezzo soloist in a recital of Rossini songs entitled Sins of My Old Age at Opera Omaha, Inez in a concert performance of Verdi’s Il Trovatore under the baton of Maestro Eduardo Müller with the Miami Concert Association, mezzo-soprano soloist in Vivaldi’s Gloriawith the Park Ridge Symphony, and Stephano in Roméo et Juliette at the Syracuse Opera. The Ithaca Journal said, “Katherine C., tall, appropriately youthful and brash, sang Stephano's taunting chanson spiritedly with a striking virtuosic final trill of the coda in two Fs.”

Katherine was formerly a member of Florida Grand Opera’s Young Artist Studio and the young artist programs of Lyric Opera of Chicago, Glimmerglass Opera, Chicago Opera Theater, Opera Theatre of St. Louis, Aspen Music Festival and Brevard Music Festival. She was awarded third place in the 2009 Shreveport Opera Singer of the Year competition, as well as a grant from the Anna Sosenko Trust and a prize-winner in the Palm Beach Opera Competition and the Bel Canto Competition.

She holds a Master of Music degree from Northwestern University and a Bachelor of Music degree from Bowling Green State University.

Katherine has taught at both the high school level (Loyola Academy, Regina Dominican and Elmwood Park) and the college level (Northwestern University as part of her graduate assistantship). Her students ranged from beginning classically trained students to musical theater students.

*** Lesson Details ***
You will constantly be learning from me when you take lessons. I am an incredibly energetic, passionate and caring person which translates to a fun, open learning environment. Students will learn about proper singing technique with me including how to take prepare the body for singing, the proper breath and how to use the body to its utmost capabilities for the best produced sound.

*** Studio Equipment ***
You feel safe, relaxed and ready to learn in our music room. Decorated with opera houses that we have performed in, surrounded by book cases with music scores and books and opera pictures, you will be inspired to learn while I sit behind our upright piano. Parents are welcome to stay and can wait in our living room or dining room while your son/daughter is learning.

*** Specialties ***
Being classically trained and being an active opera singer still, I am best suited and strongest in the classical field. However, all singing is based on proper breath technique and support, so I can teach many different genres for the voice.
