Hailed by the Washington Post for her “supple, haunting soprano,” Katelyn G. Aungst performs with intelligence, “particular purity of tone” (San Francisco Classical Voice), and grace.
She has soloed with the American Bach Soloists (St. Matthew Passion), Washington Bach Consort (St. John Passion), the Nashville Symphony Orchestra (Messiah), the City Choir of Washington (Solomon, Dona Nobis Pacem, Lord Nelson Mass), the Washington Master Chorale (Lauda per la Natività del Signore), and the Peabody Symphony Orchestra (Harmoniemesse, Great Mass in C Minor). Her choral and chamber experiences include performances with the Clarion Music Society, Oregon Bach Festival, Third Practice, the U.S. Air Force Singing Sergeants, and Three Notch’d Road.
Recent theatrical highlights include the titular role in Purcell’s Fairy Queen, Character 1 in the premiere of The Chains We Bear, and Norina in Don Pasquale. A dedicated choral educator, Ms. Aungst spent six years teaching in the Montgomery County Public Schools and served as the Assistant Artistic Director of the Six Degree Singers, a community choir based in Silver Spring, MD, from 2013-2019. She currently serves on the artistic committee for Third Practice, hoping to intertwine social awareness and connection with music from the recent and distant past.
