Ohio State's Katherine Rohrer to Make Recital Debut at Weigel Hall Auditorium, 9/23
Katherine Rohrer, newly appointed School of Music assistant professor of voice, will present her Ohio State debut recital Monday, September 23, at 8 pm in Weigel Hall Auditorium, 1866 College Rd. The performance will couple traditional repertoire with lesser-known works, including song cycles by Robert Schumann and Louis Aubert. Selections will highlight the passion of love with ultimate personal loss.
Rohrer, mezzo-soprano, balances the rigors of traditional and mainstream repertoire with some of today's most celebrated composers. She has garnered critical acclaim in recent performances as Nicklausse/Muse in Les Contes d'Hoffmann with Opera Colorado and Florida Grand Opera; Marguerite in La Damnation de Faust with Oper Frankfurt, the Malaysian Philharmonia, and the Saint Louis Symphony; the role of Lady Macbeth in Bloch's rarely heard Macbeth with London University's College Opera; and her first Pilgrim in Saariaho's L'Amour de Loin with Vlaamse Opera.
Recipient of Central City Opera's John Moriarty Apprentice Encouragement Award, Rohrer's other credits include first place in the Rose Palmer Mobile Opera Competition, finalist in the Eleanor McCollum Competition at Houston Grand Opera and finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. She was an Adler Fellow at the San Francisco Opera from 2004 to 2006.
Rohrer has a BM in music education from Stetson University and a MM in performance from New England Conservatory. She joined the faculty at The Ohio State University School of Music in autumn 2013.
