Kate

Mezzo / Soprano


Kate is thrilled to be the latest addition to Heart and Music. Sadly being a few months older than Matt, she can’t claim to be the youngest member! She is no stranger to performing-dancing having started at the age of two. She has sung in school festival-winning choirs but she was usually to be found playing trombone, notably with the National Youth Brass Band of Scotland. With this band she recorded a CD and performed in a concert, both conducted by Frank Renton, which was later broadcast by BBC Radio 2’s Listen to the Band in 1999.

Kate found her voice in her final year at school when the Prima Donna couldn’t take part in the show and Kate was asked to audition with other ‘unknowns’. Never acting on stage before, she was cast as Laetitia in Arthur Sullivan’s Operetta The Zoo. She has gone on to perform with Durham University Light Opera Group and, after graduating, moved to Norfolk where she was a member of the Watlington Players, King’s Lynn Players and King’s Lynn Operatic and Dramatic Society. For seven years she was either Principal Boy or Leading Lady in Pantos, and it was here that she discovered that there was more to her than prancing about in hotpants and knee-high boots, when she was cast as Maggie Hobson in Hobson’s Choice.

In 2012 she moved to Milton Keynes and joined Company MK. She has been a soloist in their spring concerts and taken a lead in their last two musicals. Her favourite musical roles have been Cinderella, Into the Woods, Francisca, West Side Story, Martha, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Miss Berta, Acorn Antiques and Patsy, Crazy for You.
