Kate is Creative Director of Singing In..., an organisation based in Sheffield that brings communities together to sing and make music. In the role she leads several community choirs, composes and arranges songs and directs their memorable singing holidays. Kate works as a freelance coach to choirs and their leaders. She is passionate about enabling directors to get the most out of their choirs and giving groups the tools and freedom to create exciting, moving and powerful performances.
To mark their tenth anniversary, Kate was recently commissioned by Classical Sheffield to arrange ten Kate Rusby songs for mass choir. The work, Being Human, was performed for the first time by three community choirs in March 2023. She sings Alto in Sine Nomine International Touring Choir and is one of the vocalists with the Northern Collective Big Band.
