Katie is currently enjoying leading songs and stories for young children at Shutesbury’s M.N. Spear Library every Monday morning. She is also co-directing the Journey Home Hospice Singers bedside group, where she is able to use her choral directing and vocal coaching skills.
She has been involved in many musical ventures over the years, most recently, until her retirement, she taught music and led choruses at Frontier Regional School.
At the same time she played guitar and sang with One Journey, a five woman band which performed Helen Fortier’s music as well as traditional spiritual songs.
Prior to that she was in the New Harmony Sisterhood Band, a pioneering women’s music group, and with Mosaico a multicultural band. She was musical leader for Seekers and Sojourners house church and continues leading a monthly sing started by that group.
