Kathleen also performed and broadcast with the W.A. Symphony Orchestra in Concert and Oratorios. She was chosen as a finalist in the ABC Young performers Awards and the New York Metropolitan Opera competition.

It was during this time that she was spotted by the Australian Opera Company and was asked to join the Opera Studio for young principals.

Kathleen also performed with Companies such as The Gilbert & Sullivan Society, University of NSW Opera, The Savoy Arts Company, Rockdale Musical Society, and Chatswood Musical Society.

After deciding to call it a day with large scale productions (I think I needed to find myself again, to rediscover who I am as a person) I coached for a bit then started to dabble in a variety of types of music Including:-

Barbershop (Sweet Adelines). I was a member of an award winning quartet called 'Touche' and assistance director and section leader of Circular Keys Chorus, SydneyTown Chorus both in Sydney) and Harmony In Paradise Chorus (Gold Coast, Queensland)
She also branched out into alternative styles including Celtic, Music Theatre, Contemporary pop and Jazz.

Whilst all these different times of my life brought me great happiness and personal satisfaction, it is the great lessons it taught me; the realisation of how precious life is and how important are the people we surround ourselves with on a daily basis.
It also taught me how important music is and how it can define our lives and our moods.
It can delineate the expressions of our very souls and project that image through its delivery; such is how great music is made

I have experienced many things in my life and my albums are but a snapshot into the world I have seen and the world we can all be a part of if only we would open our hearts and let it in.
