KATHLEEN MORRISON - SOPRANO
I look forward to working with the beautiful brides and handsome grooms of Calgary and area to bring an unexpected and classy element to your wedding. I have experience singing during the ceremony, signing the registry, entry of the bride, reception, rehearsal dinner, and just about anything else you can think of. I am able to perform any song that is special to you (including pop, jazz, classical, opera, etc.) and am confident that it will be a highlight on your special day!
Whether it's a song that means a lot to you as a couple, perhaps your parents/grandparents first dance song to bring in some tradition to your ceremony, or even if you need some suggestions for appropriate pieces, I'm confident that together we can find the right piece, or pieces for you.
With basic packages beginning at only $200, (including the rehearsal, day of and all tech)
there's no reason not to have Voice by Kathleen be a part of your special day!
Please contact me so we can start talking and planning your day!

Kathleen recently performed a hugely successful 10 city concert tour of China, where she performed for a combined 1 million people and made her role debut as Violetta in Verdi's La Traviata where Opera Canada described her as 'riveting'.
Let's Get Singing!
I am offering individual voice lessons focusing on developing a healthy singing technique
that can be applied to any vocal genre!
The first half of the lesson we focus on building a healthy vocal technique and production, and the second half we apply it to the songs that YOU want to sing!
Lessons are appropriate for ages 8 and up, and as mentioned, any style.
I have worked with every skill level from beginner to professional, all kinds of genres (including pop, country, classical, rap, EDM producers, rock, punk, blues, musical theatre, etc..). My studio has included everyone from doctors and lawyers, professional singers and some very spry grandmas to name a few.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Having Kathleen sing at our ceremony gave our wedding such a personal and elegant touch. Her voice is absolutely amazing, and all of the guests loved it!
Kathleen is a wonderful teacher! She makes me feel comfortable, and teaches a singing technique that I can use for my pop singing! It's really cool that her background is opera, but she is not pretentious at all!
Plus she comes to you!
Her talent is incredible, but what I love more is her ability to bring you into her world and feel the emotion of her piece. I seek out her shows and look forward to her performances at every opportunity.
