Kathryn Rose is a composer, pianist, organist, horn player and serpentist who was born in
Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, and now lives in the UK.
Her lyrical choral music has been performed in Canada, the UK, the US, the Netherlands,
Germany, and Singapore. She has a keen instinct for singable, haunting melodies, and
enjoys deceptive cadences and harmonic instability. In choral composition, she strives to create music that supports, explores, and illuminates its text, and she frequently uses word painting and careful attention to metre and word stress to achieve this.
Kathryn is currently studying for a PhD in contemporary sacred choral composition with
Paul Mealor at the University of Aberdeen. She is passionate about accessibility and
community inclusion in music at all levels, and uses crowdfunding to make her choral
music available online.
