Kate is a 20-year old mezzo-soprano and music education major from Milford, Ohio. Since she was you, she knew she had to spend her life circled around music. What started as a love of tuba playing quickly turned into a love of theater, choral music, solo vocal music, orchestral music, and being involved in all of these things to the greatest capacity possible.
Kate has played in several orchestras, including UCSO and All-State Orchestra, and has sung in countless choirs as CCM Chamber Choir and the chorus for Cincinnati Ballet’s Carmina Burana. She has taught private voice lessons and middle school and high school choir classes.
Kate has been involved with The First Presbyterian Church of Glendale for two and a half years and has adored every minute spent with the people who make this church home.
