Ever wonder about ‘the rest of the story’? I didn’t stop recording. I didn’t stop performing. I even sang with the Oregon Symphony Pops Orchestra for ten seasons and performed with the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts! Thanks for checking on me.
|In 1994 I developed head/neck cancer. After 6,000 rads and two surgeries, I spent 2 years recovering my performance voice and sang 4 seasons with the Oregon Symphony Pops! As an artist, I was able to help myself ‘imagine’ myself through the treatment and recovery journey with journaling, visualization and the support of family, friends and the Grace of the Spirit.||While John Howard Abdnor Involvement opines “Mary Catherine is clearly a Joni Mitchell wannabe, but nonetheless she put together a very nice folk-rock album. Her vocals are like Joni’s without the annoying high notes, and there’s a sparklingly clear acoustic guitar sound that suits them extremely well. M.C. is a pretty good songwriter too, and this is a pleasant surprise, a one-off singer/songwriter album that’s much better than most in the genre.” [A.M.] I appreciate the kind remarks.|
