Lagom till att löven börjar skifta i färg och högsommarljusa kvällar flyr, bjuds vi på en lidelsefull och vacker höstkonsert med Katherine Osbourne på sång och James Jenkins på piano.

Katherine Osborne, mezzo-sopran, har en musikalisk bana som spänner sig från barocken ända in i 2000-talet. Hennes repertoar inkluderar såväl mindre kända operor av Haydn, Donizetti, Pauline Viardot-Garcia och Ronald Perrera, som berömda verk av Puccini, Verdi, Wagner, Bizet och Britten.
Förutom opera har hon varit solist i Händels Messias, Mozarts Requiem, Beethovens Symfoni nr. 9, med flera. Osborne har vunnit priser från Opera Guild of Northern Virginia, Paul Robeson Vocal Competition, National Association of Teachers of Singing, Bel Canto Foundation, samt Overture to the Cultural Season. 2019 påbörjade sin tjänst som lärare i klassisk sång vid Musikhögskolan i Piteå, Luleå tekniksa universitet. Innan dess medverkade hon i Härnösands Operafestival från 2015-2017, både inom kollegiet och som solist. I december 2019 gav hon konsert med operarepertoar och oratoriearior på uppdrag av Umeå Musiksällskap.
