Katie Sucha began her career as a choral director and church musician after graduating from Eastern Michigan University with a degree in vocal music education. She earned her master’s degree in music history from Binghamton University where she completed her thesis, “Giovanni Animuccia, Francisco Soto, and the Early Roman Lauda.” A lifelong fan of early music, Katie’s interest in Renaissance and Baroque sacred repertoire has led her to a variety of interesting performance projects and ensembles. She currently sings with Quire Cleveland, Cleveland Chamber Choir, and the Trinity Cathedral Choir. Katie is also the cofounder and artistic director of Serafina, a quartet dedicated to performing the work of early women musicians and composers. This project inspired her to enroll in the musicology PhD program at Case, where she studies the musical culture of 17th century convents.
