Kathleen Spencer is a new york based artist, singer, and creator. She grew up in Knoxville, TN. Where she loved playing piano and singing. She was always very involved with her youth worship band as well as school musicals. She moved just out of Nashville, TN to earn her Bachelors of Music at Middle Tennessee State University in Vocal Performance. It was here that she explored jazz, pop, and opera. She pursued her love of opera, which led her to Manhattan School of Music for a Masters in Music in Vocal Performance. After graduating, Kathleen worked in young artists programs such as Brevard Music Festival and Chautauqua Institute of Music. In 2016 Kathleen came to a realization that there are so many incredible artists out there and the industry was not conducive to utilizing all the talent and she wanted to do something about it.
In fall 2016 she reached out to her friend Megan Gillis, and the two of them co-founded City Lyric Opera. Now Kathleen has had the opportunity to not only produce opera, but develop her photography skills as well as her teaching skills.
Along with her professional endeavors, Kathleen is passionate about working with the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York to build stronger nonprofits by providing resources and trainings on better nonprofit management. She also enjoys serving on the worship team at Liberty Church.
