American mezzo Kate Lindsey


Maria Nockin: When did you first become interested in music?

Kate Lindsey: I can't remember a time when I wasn't interested in music. I have always loved singing and, as a child, was fascinated with performances on television. My mom loved watching musicals and I would sit in front of the screen to enjoy all the Rogers and Hammerstein shows with her. I'd sing along and act out parts, too...
