"This may be the clearest application I have ever read. Katie did an excellent job of explaining her reasons for doing the project, and especially her reasons for making the ASL choices that she did. I learned an enormous amount from listening to her."

Katherine Dubbs is an arts producer, director, entrepreneur, and opera creator who specializes in community-based programming and equal access advocacy. She grew up with deaf and hard of hearing family members, and after returning to New York from studying opera in Austria, Katherine became passionate about integrating and celebrating these varied worlds, communities, and means of communication. Katherine was the founder, president, and artistic director of Princeton Opera Company, having produced and performed in over 25 events, including 7 operas. She was also the founder and creator of Acappellooza, a New York state-wide a cappella festival now in its 8th year that includes over 15,000 New Yorkers in its musical experience (this year on April 7, 2017). She received her musical training in Vienna as the recipient of the 2014 Sachs Graduating Scholarship from Princeton University and trains as a young dramatic soprano with teacher Arthur Levy. For her development of SIGN & SING, she is the 2015-16 and 2016-17 Marin Alsop Entrepreneurial Award winner as well as the 2016-17 Emerging Leader of New York Arts Fellow. Katherine is dedicated to reinvigorating opera to make it more accessible and enjoyable to all.
