Bio: Soprano Katherine Boyce (née Crowe) received her Master of Music in Vocal Performance from Towson University and her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY. During her graduate studies, she performed Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, Laurie in Act III of The Tender Land, and the Siren in the premiere of Dr. Phillip Collister's Pasticcio Furioso. She has also performed several roles at Annapolis Opera through Towson University's Opera in a Can program, singing the title role in Barab's Little Red Riding Hood, Despina in Mozart/Davies' The Three Little Pigs, and Pamina in a children's version of The Magic Flute.
At Eastman, Katherine was a Howard Hanson Scholar and performed roles in multiple Eastman Opera Theatre productions, including Franz Lehár’s “The Merry Widow,” Francis Poulenc’s “Les mamelles de Tirésias” and John Kander’s “Cabaret,” in addition to various solo and chamber music recitals. Katherine was also selected to be a member of Eastman’s Institute for Music Leadership’s Arts Leadership Certificate Program, through which she received a grant to intern at the Washington National Opera, was a Generation E-Student Scholarship Recipient, and coordinated the rohr(BACH) event at Rochester’s Rohrbach Brewing Company. Additionally, she studied fencing and theatre at the University of Rochester, where she served as music director and performed the role of Julie in the UR International Theatre Program’s production of Georg Büchner’s Danton’s Death. Katherine currently performs, studies, and teaches in the Baltimore/DC area. One of Katherine’s favorite parts of teaching is helping students combine a technical understanding of their instrument with a love of song text, in order to create communicative, healthy performances. Katherine is a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and has experience teaching a variety of musical styles. She currently studies with Jennifer Casey Cabot, having previously trained with Katherine Ciesinski and Ruth Drucker.
