Katie Olsen


Voice Part: Alto

Year joined Credo Catholic Choir:  2017

Hometown:  Rapid City, SD

Education:  BS in Music from Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Full-time musician:  No.

What else do you do for a living:  Freelance Graphic Design

Where else do you sing/perform:  Cantor and choir member at St. Basil Catholic Church and St. Therese Catholic Church, and where ever someone sends up the Bat Signal for an alto ringer.

What’s your favorite music right now?  Right now, I’m into indie folk/country (I love you, Neko Case), but, historically, I love grungy guitars of great pathos.

Favorite onstage moment:  Not a specific performance, both those rare moments when everyone, performers and audience, are out of their heads and in the music together – it’s like a current of electricity across your skin.

Anything else you’d like us to know:  I read a lot and I really love beagles.
