Classically trained, Katleen has won a variety of accolades in that genre. In January, 2018 she was named a winner in La Jolla Symphony's Young Artist Competition. She also received a generous scholarship to the prestigious Wanda L. Bass School of Music in Oklahoma.
Katleen has studied under Caroline Altman of the San Francisco Opera and more recently under Dr. Kelly Holst, who has had an illustrious career with Michigan Opera Theater, Lafayette Symphony Orchestra, and Carnegie Hall. Her current instructor, Diane Alexander, has received professional acclaim at the San Diego Opera, Florentine Opera, Hawaii Opera Theatre and many others.
Katleen applies her talent in the classical realm, singing sacred music in churches, both as a soloist and in groups. She has been asked repeatedly to sing our national anthem with thousands in attendance, and was a soloist for a special ceremony honoring World War II Veterans receiving the Legion of Honor Medal from France. She is available to make your ceremony or special event unforgettable.
