Catherine Nix continues to delight audiences across the country with her vocal versatility and creative recital programming.  She is equally comfortable in the musical genres of opera, oratorio, sacred works, orchestral works, and intimate chamber ensemble settings. Her warm vocal timbre is evenly balanced with the clarity of her coloratura. 

Dr. Nix was selected as a finalist for the George Cortez Classical Singing Award by the San Antonio Artist Foundation in 2008 and 2013.  She was also the second place winner of the National Federation of Music Clubs Young Artists Competition and a regional finalist in the Texoma National Association of the Teachers of Singing Artists Award Competition. She has performed with ensembles and symphonies in San Antonio, Niwot, LIttleton, Westminster, Longmont and Boulder.  

As an experienced recitalist, she has recently produced concerts entitled Visiting Emily: Song Settings of the Poems of Emily Dickinson, It’s All About the Food, and Spewing Gargoyles and Singing Serpents:  Vocal Music of the 20th Century.  Her most recent artist recital, Through the Eyes of a Child, featured songs about children and songs from a child’s perspective.

In addition to fulfilling her schedule of performance engagements, Dr. Nix serves on the voice faculty of both The University of the Incarnate Word and Musical Arts Center of San Antonio.  She enjoys sharing her love of vocal literature, diction and pedagogy with her students and finds their creativity a catalyst for renewed energy in her own performing.

Dr. Nix has also been active in liturgical music and is in demand as a workshop clinician. She has worked with church musicians across the country, and she specializes in the ministry of the Catholic cantor.
