Introduction Kathleen Shimeta has enjoyed a versatile career performing art songs, oratorio and opera. As a sought after recitalist and soloist Ms. Shimeta traveled throughout the United States. She has devoted time to performing the songs of composer Gena Branscombe. Kathleen performed her one-woman show, “Life! Love! Song! A Visit with Gena Branscombe,” with fifteen of Miss Branscombe’s elegantly lyrical songs with vivid first-person dialogue. Her CD, “Ah, Love I Shall Find Thee: Songs of Gena Branscombe,” is on the Albany Records label. Her performance of Branscombe’s song Serenade was chosen for Program 8 “Arthur Farwell, American Pioneer” on baritone Thomas Hampson’s, Song of America. With her research and dedication to bringing back Miss Branscombe’s music, the Library of Congress published an interview with Kathleen on their blog and in the Gazette. Ms. Shimeta has authored articles for the Association of Canadian Woman Composer journal, Sigma Alpha Iota’s Pan Pipes, Women in the Arts: Eccentric Essays II published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing, WomenArts Journal and others. Ms. Shimeta was included in renowned photographer Steffen Thalemann’s exhibit, “Outside the Box.”
