Caitlin has been hailed for her “touching” (Welt.de) and “no holds barred” (Qonstage) performances in a wide spectrum of repertoire, covering Purcell, Mozart, Massenet, Tchaikovsky, and more. Since her studies at The Juilliard School, she has been a sought after performer for both traditional works and modern music on American and European stages. Caitlin has a passion for performing new works, collaborating with composers (especially modern female composers in the classical music world), and creating her own interdisciplinary performances with fellow like-minded singers, dancers, acrobats, and actors.
Though initially trained as a classical artist, Caitlin has spent the last 5 years focusing on experimental music and contemporary performance. Her contemporary repertoire spans a wide range of styles and includes works such as Gubaidulina's Perception Cantata, George Crumb's River of Life Songbook, Jakob Druckman's Animus II, and Jakob Ullmann's Voice, Books, and FIRE series, as well as collaborations with various contemporary music groups such as the New Juilliard Ensemble. (USA) and Phoenix16 (Berlin). Her most notable concerts include performances at Carnegie Hall, Nuremberg Serenadenhof with the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra and Alice Tully Hall (Lincoln Center, NY), as well as Smetana Hall (Prague), Megaron Mousikis (Athens) and the Berliner Festspielhaus.
Also an aerial singer, her first trapeze dance productions began with Australian composer Chloé Charody. This included 2 new circus operas shot in Berlin and the subsequent premiere of a new work in the UK. The premiere of Charody's next cycle of songs for acrobatic soprano (Truth in a Cage) and the circus opera (The Devil's Tiger) are scheduled to premiere next season in Berlin.
Caitlin is also a member of the physically disabled community (with Erb's palsy of the right arm and shoulder) and is passionate about disability advocacy and representation, particularly in the world of performing arts. She especially enjoys working and creating with other physically disabled artists, exploring narratives and spaces from which disabled artists are typically excluded.
Caitlin was a resident young artist at the Internationale Meistersinger Akademie with Edith Wiens and Tobias Truniger, Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, Crested Butte Opera Festival, and the Castleton Festival with the late Maestro Lorin Maazel.
She holds a graduate degree from The Juilliard School where she was a recipient of the prestigious Novick Grant, and bachelors degrees from the University of Maryland in voice and Italian Literature. Caitlin speaks English, German, Italian, Spanish, and French and currently splits her time between Barcelona and Berlin.
