Katherine is honored to sing the North American premiere of three songs by Pál Hermann for James Conlon’s Recovered Voices Project. Hermann was born into a Jewish family in Budapest in 1902, and made a career for himself as a cellist and composer before being arrested in a street raid by the Vichy Regime and sent to the Drancy Transit Camp, after which he was not heard of again.

Katherine will be performing the songs with pianist Tali Tadmor at Thayer Hall on the Colburn campus on April 18, 2016 at 5:30 pm.
