Choreographer
Kate Leavey
Kate began her career performing shows at the Boston Center for the Arts and headlining around Boston, performing at The Top of the Hub and Sculler’s Jazz Club.  She even ventured down to New York where she sang at the Waldorf Astoria and enjoyed scatting across the stage of Carnegie Hall.  While Kate has spent most of her career in the ministry of music, she is a lyric soprano, an artist who thrives on collaboration and the creative spirit. She holds a BA and an MAT from Boston College, as well as an MSM from Boston University and she worked for many years as the Director of Liturgical Arts at Boston College. A lover of all the arts, Kate has just finished her second YA novel and is querying her first for publication.  (Any literary agents should meet her in the lobby after the show!)  In June, Kate will be honored at the State House as one of Massachusetts’ “Unsung Heroines” for her work with Sound & Spirit. In October, she will be honored at a dinner in her hometown as the 2016 recipient of the “Sports Achievement Award”.  Kate lives in Natick with her husband, Steve, the Bass section leader, and the four children they adore, two of whom are performing on the stage, and two of whom are ushering.

Victoria Mariconti graduated summa cum laude from Boston College in 2015, receiving a BA in music with “Scholar of the College” distinction. A member of the Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences Honors Program, she spent most of her time outside of the classroom in many of the University’s performing ensembles. Additionally, Victoria performed as both an accompanist and soloist throughout her time at BC, and worked as a minister of music for the student Liturgy Arts Group and St. Ignatius Parish. When not behind the piano, Victoria tutored Italian, wrote opinion pieces, and kept first-year students out of trouble as a resident assistant.
 
After graduating, Victoria traveled to Bydgoszcz, Poland, as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant; she taught applied linguistics to undergraduate and graduate students. Upon returning to Boston in 2016, she began working for Boston College University Advancement as Assistant to the Associate Vice President for Alumni Relations. Victoria is an assistant accompanist at the Parish of Sacred Heart in Newton Centre, and fills in frequently at other parishes in the Boston Archdiocese. She also continues to play as an accompanist for solo performers, small ensembles, and community choirs. Her plans for the future are focused on graduate studies.
