About

In 1972, Kathleen Battle was an elementary school music teacher in Cincinnati, studying voice in her spare time. Following a fortuitous audition with conductor Thomas Schippers later that year, which won her a spot in Brahms's Ein deutsches Requiem in an Italian festival, her vocal career quickly gained momentum. By the end of the decade she had wowed the crowds at Carnegie Hall, Salzburg, the Met, Glyndebourne, and more, becoming one of the most coveted names in opera.
