Institute for Music Leadership: Career Tips in 20 Minutes from Kathryn Cowdrick

Kathryn Cowdrick - Reflecting Professionalism

About the Presenter:

Opera News has described Kathryn Cowdrick as an artist who “brightly infused every scene with her singing, dazzling fioratura, and her sexy, warm, comedienne personality,” a remark which seems to convey the essence of this charismatic mezzo-soprano. A native of Allentown, PA, she is a graduate of Penn State and of Columbia University with a masters degree in Speech and Voice Pathology. She was a member of the Opera Center at the Juilliard School. She has been on the faculty of the Eastman School of Music since 2002, teaching studio voice and vocal pedagogy. She is a well-respected masterclass clinician for Young Artist programs for lectures on vocal health and longevity. She is the President of the Central NY Finger Lakes chapter of NATS and resides in Rochester, NY with her husband tenor Robert Swensen. Her son Matthew Swensen is as member of the ensemble at Opera Frankfurt in Frankfurt, Germany.
