Kate’s debut album “As I Am” was released on November 7th, and it features new music by women composers. Through this project, she was invited to present recitals at various festivals and events including the Women Composer’s Festival of Hartford, the Women of the World Festival of Baltimore, and the International Women’s Brass Conference.
As a composer, Kate wrote a piece for her debut album and continues to write other works for unaccompanied trumpet - most recently combining with singing and speaking.
In addition to advocating for female composers, Kate is also very passionate about expanding awareness and representation for female brass players. She is half of the team behind Brass Chicks – a blog dedicated to celebrating the work of female brass players with guest posts and interviews. Kate earned a MM from Peabody Conservatory and a BM from New York University.
