Catherine Olson
Passionately committed to both art and audience, Catherine's stage work ranges from 17th Century Opera to American Songbook. Catherine has appeared recently with bohemian cabaret ensemble Vagabond Opera, Northwest New Music, Musica Maestrale for concerts of English lute songs and early Italian repertoire, and a new group of musical theatre story-tellers: Heretic Opera. Recent roles include Despina (Così fan tutte), Cupid (Orpheus in the Underworld) and Meg (Brigadoon), as well as work on contemporary music projects, including film music by José Sánchez-Verdú to Nosferatu at the Konzerthaus Berlin, Young Camille Claudel in Theresa Koon's Promise, and Esmerelda in Queen of Knives, a new opera by Eric Stern. After seeing the Polish countryside while visiting family in Eastern Slovakia, Catherine is excited to be making her first foray into this beautiful country's Baroque music.
