Kate Vetter Cain, soprano

Soprano Kate Vetter Cain’s “sweetness of timbre and vocal power” (The Washington Post) has led her to collaborate with some of our region’s most renowned ensembles.  She has sung as both a soloist and ensemble member for many seasons with the Washington Bach Consort, and has especially enjoyed both soprano solo parts in the Mass in B-minor and many cantata solos with the late and much beloved J. Reilly Lewis.  Kate has also been a soloist for Leonard Slatkin with the National Chamber Players in Mahler’s 4th Symphony and for Kenneth Slowik in BWV 51 “Jauchzet Gott,” and also with the Cathedral Choral Society, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra with conductor Marin Alsop, Folger Consort, Chantry, Cathedra, Washington Concert Opera with conductor Antony Walker, Orchestra of St. Luke’s with conductor Will Crutchfield, Washington Ballet, DC’s In Series, Ash-Lawn Highland Festival, Caramoor Festival Opera, Taconic Opera, Tanglewood Music Center, and Off-Broadway with The New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players.  Kate especially enjoyed singing solo songs of Chopin to the choreography of ballet superstar Christopher Wheeldon at the New York City Center debut of his company Morphoses, and again at the Vail International Festival of Dance.  Kate earned a B.A. in History from Yale University, as well as a Master in Voice from Manhattan School of Music and a DMA from the University of Maryland, and served for ten years as music teacher at a bilingual DC public charter school.  She currently maintains a private voice studio in Washington, DC.
