Biography:
Kate Westbrook’s repertoire embraces Jazz, Music Theatre and Popular Song as well as the
work of such contemporary composers as Michael Finnissy. She has sung the role of Anna in
The Seven Deadly Sins by Brecht and Weill with the London Symphony Orchestra, arias by
Rossini with the Mike Westbrook Orchestra in Big Band Rossini at the BBC Proms, and
songs by the Beatles with the Westbrook Band in Off Abbey Road. As a lyricist, often working
in collaboration with Mike Westbrook, Kate has written many song cycles, most recently for
the album Fine ‘n Yellow. Her libretti include the one-woman opera Cape Gloss, Mathilda’s
Story. Her recordings include Cuff Clout, a Neoteric Music Hall with her band The
Skirmishers, in which her texts are set by eight composers from the worlds of Jazz, Rock, Pop
and Contemporary Classical Music, Art Wolf, dedicated to the 18th century Alpine painter
Caspar Wolf, The Nijinska Chamber, a celebration of the great dancer/choreographer
Bronislava Nijinska and the Westbrook Trio album ‘three into wonderfull’.
