Vocalist - Mezzo-Soprano
About
American mezzo-soprano Catherine Cook has excelled in a wide range of roles with leading companies throughout the United States. The Cincinnati Post wrote that she "more than once recalled the great mezzo Marilyn Horne: her luxurious voice showed remarkable flexibility." Her exciting characterizations garner acclaim as well. Following recent performances of La Cenerentola, the San Francisco Chronicle exclaimed, "As Tisbe, the younger of the two stepsisters, mezzo-soprano Catherine Cook continued her seemingly endless streak as one of the company's great underused treasures, combining forceful singing and sly comic charm into an irresistible package."

Latest Acclaim

“Natalia’s aria ‘New girls’ … [was] sung authoritatively by veteran mezzo soprano Catherine Cook … Cook made a strong impression and her crystal clear diction rendered Natalia’s supertitles unnecessary.”
