Catherine Wethington

Catherine Wethington, rising star of a new generation of American coloratura sopranos, has dazzled audiences in North America and Europe with her "sumptuous coloratura and otherworldly pianissimi" (Herald Tribune). Opera Canada Magazine describes Ms. Wethington as having the "vocal power and dramatic finesse... [and] vocal fireworks" necessary for bel canto opera.

In January 2019, Wethington was a finalist and winner in the Concorso Lirico Internazionale Gigli-Franci, in Rome, Italy. In April 2019, she debuted in the role of Amina, in Bellini's La sonnambula with Opera Niagara and in July 2019, she made her debut in Busseto, Italy with Operavision Academy as Medora in Verdi’s Il Corsaro, directed by Marco Gandini. In addition, in 2019 she sang under the baton of the great Maestro Richard Bonynge performing the role of Amina from La sonnambula in Busseto, Italy..

Ms. Wethington has been a featured soloist in concerts and recitals in North America and in Europe, including in a televised concert celebrating tenor, Carlo Bergonzi and in recital at the French Embassy in Washington, DC. In 2021, she was a featured soloist in a virtual concert for the Children's Chorus of Washington, and in 2022, Ms. Wethington, returned to Sarasota Floridato sing in the "Going Green" Gala Concert with the Choral Artists of Sarasota. Ms. Wethington holds music degrees from the University of Michigan and The Catholic University of America.
