Katherine Bruton (Ghost Choir) brings a clear voice and vibrant characterization to the world of opera and art song. Her nuanced musicality and virtuosic vocal fireworks have earned her the roles of Miss Silverpeal (The Impresario), Mabel (The Pirates of Penzance), Le feu (L'enfant et les sortileges), and Virtù (L'incoronazione di Poppea), among others. She has also appeared with Pasadena Opera, the critically acclaimed Pacific Opera Project, and OperaUCLA. An advocate of new opera, Ms. Bruton has been a part of several operatic premieres. She recently performed in the Chicago premieres off comtemporary one-act operas as Darling Donnis in The Final Battle for Love by Philip Thompson, Sang Kancil the Mouse Deer in The Mouse Deer and the Crocodile by Hong-Da Chin, and Wing Tip in The Rootabaga Stories by Yvonne Freckmann with Thompson Street Opera Company. She also had the privilege of creating the role of “La Saborini” in the world premiere of The Dove and The Nightingale by American composer Roger Bourland. She has also given premieres of several art songs and art song cycles, including Littles by Michelle Isaac and Personal Weather by Pin Hsing Lin. Ms. Bruton is pursuing her Masters of Music degree from Chicago College of Performing Arts, where she studies with soprano Judith Haddon. She also received bachelors' degrees in vocal performance and music education from UCLA, where she studied with Vladimir Chernov. She is a proud OperaWorks alumna and has also attended Songfest in Los Angeles, CA and the Summer in Payerbach Opera Intensive in Austria.
