Mezzo-soprano Kathryn Weld has made a name for herself as a gifted and versatile concert singer. As an early music specialist, she has been a featured soloist with such ensembles as the Philharmonia Baroque, under the direction of Nicholas McGegan, Music at St. John's in New York, the Magnificat Baroque Orchestra in San Francisco, and the Portland Baroque Orchestra, with whom she was heard in a live NPR broadcast of Messiah. Ms. Weld made her Carnegie Hall debut to critical acclaim in a performance of Bach's Mass in B minor, with Musica Sacra. She was previously a winner of Musica Sacra's Bach Vocal Competition. She has also made two solo appearances with the New York Philharmonic, one with Charles Dutoit conducting De Falla's Three-Cornered Hat, and the other under Kurt Masur's baton in Peer Gynt. In Munich, Germany, she appeared as a soloist with the Bayerischen Rundfunkchor (Bavarian Radio Choir), the Consortium Musicum of Munich, and the Munich Baroque Orchestra, among others. In the Northwest, she has also appeared with the Oregon Symphony, the Northwest Chamber Orchestra, Seattle Pro Musica, and many others, including numerous performances with Orchestra Seattle and the Seattle Chamber Singers.
