After three years on the National tour of The Phantom of the Opera, Kathryn is happy to be back in the New York area, where she was recently featured in Encores! The NewYorkers. The reconstructed Cole Porter musical saw its first performance in eighty-seven years when it returned to the stage at The New York City Center this spring.
Kathryn holds a BA in music from the College of Wooster, where she got her start in classical solo voice, studying with Jim Mismas and singing with the Wooster Chorus under the direction of John Russell. Kathryn also holds a Masters of Music from THE Ohio State University, where she studied with Dr. Robin Rice. She also studied voice at the University of Missouri Kansas City Conservatory with Dr. Rebecca Sherburn, who incidentally was also Carlotta in the European tour of The Phantom of the Opera.
