Adjunct Instructor

Kathryn Weld

Mezzo–soprano Kathryn Weld has performed extensively throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan. Her expertise extends from Baroque ornamentation to bel canto opera, from Mahler’s symphonic song cycles to contemporary work. She has made two solo appearances with the New York Philharmonic, one with Charles Dutoit conducting de Falla’s Three–Cornered Hat, and the other under the direction of Kurt Masur in Grieg’s Peer Gynt. She made her Carnegie Hall debut to critical acclaim in a performance of Bach’s Mass in B Minor with Musica Sacra. Highlights of her recent symphonic work include Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde at the Northwest Mahler Festival, Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony with the Seattle Youth Symphony, and Berlioz’ Les Nuits d’Ete with Orchestra Seattle. Other northwest appearances include the Oregon Symphony, Helena Symphony, Wyoming Symphony, and Portland Baroque Orchestra, the latter broadcast live on National Public Radio.

On stage, Weld has appeared with the Seattle Opera, Opera Carolina, Tacoma Opera, the Regensburg Opera Theater in Germany and the State Repertory Opera of New Jersey, among others. Her roles include Cherubino in Le Nozze di Figaro, Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Dorabella in Cosi fan Tutte, Orfeo in Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice and the Prince in Cendrillon. She also portrayed the famous chef Julia Child in the one–woman opera, Bon Appetit!, by Lee Hoiby.

Weld has also been a featured soloist with the Bayerischen Rundfunkchor (Bavarian Radio Choir), Consortium Musicum (Munich), and the Prague Philharmonic. She has also been featured with the St. Luke’s Chamber Orchestra, the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra under Nicolas McGegan, the Mark Morris Dance Company, the Sapporo Symphony, and the Osaka Chamber Orchestra. This year includes her first concerts in Paris, France with internationally renowned accompanist Laurana Mitchelmore, a duo recital with baritone Robert Orth, and concerts in Helsinki, Moscow, and St. Petersburg.
