Kate has sung with many of the country's finest choirs and consorts as well as having developed a reputation as soloist in both oratorio and opera. In opera she has sung repertoire ranging from Mrs P in Michael Nyman's The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat to title roles in Mozart's Il Re Pastore, and Handel's Il Pastor fido, as well as playing Ottavia in Monteverdi's L'Incoronazione di Poppea. Oratorio solos have ranged from Aaron Copland's In the Beginning through to Monterverdi's Vespers. Kate has toured and recorded with Taverner Consort, Monteverdi Choir, Dunedin Consort, Gabrielli Consort, Eric Whitacre Singers and Brabant Ensemble.
Kate enjoys collaboration with other musicians and has a regular duo with harpsichordist and fortepianist Steven Devine with whom she regularly performs muisc ranging from 17th and 18th century English song to Haydn and Early Beethoven.
Kate enjoys the stimulation of music in education and has worked closely with teams from the education department of The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment working with children with Severe and Complex Needs through music from Purcell's Fairy Queen and Dido and Aeneas. She has also enjoyed sharing research and performance technique in workshops for the Early Music Fora across the country.
Kate has increasingly been using her knowledge of voice and performance in coaching and tutoring of young professionals and amateur adult singers. She has taught with Nancy Argenta on Baroque Oratorio summer schools in Victoria, Canada, and has run classes at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. This year she was due to be working in Canada with the young singers of Opera Nuova, and will be running the vocal workshops at Dartington International Summer School.
