About: Kate Stringer
Kate Stringer received her MM in musicology from Boston University in 2013, with a thesis entitled Subverted Modernism: Korngold’s “Die tote Stadt.” Her research centers on issues of politics and identity in Austro-Germanic music of the early 20th-century. In addition to her scholarly activities, Kate is a veteran actress, lyricist, playwright and stage director who completed her undergraduate training in music and theatre performance at Oklahoma City University. A versatile mezzo-soprano who pursues performance interests across genres, Kate is active as a Boston-area recitalist and cabaret artist. She has sung in venues across the US and in Europe, including as a chorus member in a performance of Verdi's Requiem at the former concentration camp in Terezìn, Czech Republic, a concert that formed the basis of the documentary film Defiant Requiem. She currently holds the position of Research and Public Information Administrator at the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University.
