Catherine Dupuis

Catherine brings an expressive warmth to her singing, as well as a skilled ability to communicate the emotional content of a lyric. Her unique abilities as a performer are a culmination of her natural talent, as well as her experience and training as an actress and vocalist. While at Indiana University's School of Music (from which she holds a B.S. in both Music and Theatre), she studied with the legendary Eileen Farrell, known not only for her work as one of the great contemporary operatic mezzo-sopranos, but also as one of the foremost interpreters of The Great American Song Book. While at Indiana University, Catherine performed with the highly regarded Singing Hoosiers under the direction of respected music educator Robert Stoll. Catherine worked her way through an M.F.A. in Acting and Movement from Penn State University by doing local voice-overs, jingles and backup recording work in central Pennsylvania studios. In 1985, she moved to New York City.

Since 1994, Catherine has appeared to critical acclaim at popular New York City venues, including Smoke, the Knickerbocker, Chez Suzette, Shelly's NY, Metronome, Cleopatra's Needle, Jilly's NY, La Belle Epoque, Don't Tell Mama, The Triad (formerly Steve McGraw's), Danny's Skylight Room, Eighty-Eight's, the Caviarteria at the Soho Grand and Town Hall for the Mabel Mercer Foundation's Cabaret Convention. She has appeared at the Mohonk Mountain House Jazz on the Mountain (hosted by Michael Bourne of WBGO-Newark, NJ), the Sackets Harbor Jazz Festival, the Montclair (NJ) Women in Jazz Festival, and The Central Penna. Festival of the Arts. From Cole Porter to Sting, Catherine's eclectic taste in musical material often finds her performing a broad spectrum of music. Her repertoire includes jazz standards and American Popular Songs, as well as fresh, contemporary compositions (by David Cantor (Dave's True Story), Bill Mays, Mark Murphy and Russ Kassoff).
