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 Orhpe. 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 Mller with the Miami Concert Association, mezzo-soprano soloist in Vivaldi’s Gloriawith the Park Ridge Symphony, and Stephano in Romo 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.

Opera Voice, Singing

About Me

Whether you like Mozart or Carrie Underwood, good singing is good singing. The fundamentals I teach focus on healthy, sustainable, easy production that you can use in choir AND at karaoke night.

I am currently working on a Master of Music at the University of Michigan, and I have a B.M. from the University of Southern California. Although my focus is on operatic and classical singing, I have sung musical theater, jazz, and pop as well - I was in an a Capella group in college and have sung with a few local oldies and hip-hop bands. So whether you are considering a career in music or just want to brush up your shower singing, give me a call!

*** Lesson Details ***
30 to 60-minute lessons available; 30-minute lessons recommended for children ages 8-14. Lessons will begin with vocalization with specialized warm-ups targeting technique, such as proper breath control, vowel clarity, and relaxed singing. The second half of lessons will be spent on repertoire, e.g. music. You may choose your own music based on preference or upcoming events, or ask for suggestions.‚ 

A note about my availability: I get my rehearsal schedule on a weekly basis, with all rehearsals taking place between 4:30-10:30 p.m. on weekdays. Although I cannot regularly schedule lessons during that time because of the potential conflict, I am available during that window most of the time. If you want a lesson during that time, you can have it as long as you can be a little flexible when I have rehearsal!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard and practice area. Recordings can be provided upon request

*** Travel Equipment ***
A keyboard or piano must be available for in-home lessons. Students should also keep a lesson binder or notebook with paper for writing. Some music may have to be purchased, but I can supply some, especially in classical/musical theater genres.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical singing, but I am also experienced in modern styles, such as musical theater, blues, and pop.
