Described by vocal instructor Alice Blackhall as having a "loving and kind disposition," Catherine brings 20 years of experience and classical training to you. She is equally at home singing Broadway ballads at an intimate restaurant, improvising on piano with a jazz ensemble, or leading a congregation in classic hymns. You will find her punctual and prepared; one colleague said that she "contributes nothing short of 100% to her job. Book Catherine for your next event!
