Kate Listick began singing with the Los Robles Children’s Choir (LRCC) at age eight, under the direction of Donna Young, and continued through her teen years under the direction of Edward and Dana Rouse. As a young adult she continued her involvement with LRCC as an assistant while also joining the Los Robles Master Chorale, where she was honored to have been chosen to sing a solo for the debut of a new commissioned work by Jasper Randall, under the direction of Lesley Leighton.
Kate is delighted to continue her chorale journey with Arete Vocal Ensemble, having attended many wonderful performances over the years under its inimitable director Wyant Morton.
Some highlights of her musical career include a performance on the TV show Code Black as a featured soloist and participation as a session singer for a recording at Capitol Records.
She was honored to be a top-ten finalist in a Southern California Vocal Association (SCVA) competition and to have been included in SCVA and American Chorale Director’s Association honor choirs.
During the week, Kate can be found sharing her love of music with the children at Monte Vista Presbyterian Preschool, where she teaches, and can be heard on many Sundays singing in the choir with her fellow church congregants at The Church of the Epiphany in Oak Park, under music director Jay Wilcox.
