In the summer of 2021, she had the distinct honor of joining the Santa Fe Opera, where she performed the role of Lucy Harker in the world premiere of John Corigliano’s The Lord of Cries and covered the role of Helena in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In the 2022-23 season, Kathryn will make her Lyric Opera of Chicago debut in the world premiere piece Proximity.

She had the honor of celebrating the 80th birthdays of William Bolcom and John Corigliano as part of the New York Festival of Song at Juilliard, alongside legendary pianist Steven Blier.

Ms. Henry’s further opera credits include Micaëla in La tragédie de Carmen, the title role in Viardot’s Cendrillon, Governess in The Turn of the Screw, First Lady in Die Zauberflöte, and the title role in Suor Angelica. As a Baumgartner Studio Artist with the Florentine Opera Company, she covered the role of La Contessa in Le nozze di Figaroand performed Barbarina.

Following her debut at Santa Fe Opera, she was awarded the Lillian Caroff Mayer Award for outstanding talent and work as a part of the Apprentice Singer program.

Acclaimed for her interpretation of song and symphonic works, Kathryn has appeared as a guest soloist with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra, and National Symphony Orchestra. In recital, she has performed alongside pianists Brian Zeger, Craig Rutenburg, and Mikael Eliasen.
