Catherine  has been heard many times as both soloist and collaborator with tenor Steven Stolen in live performances with Dance Kaleidoscope as well as soloist in a production of OLD WICKED SONGS  with the Indiana Repertory Theatre.  Catherine has recorded several compact discs with bassist, David Murray, bassist, Ju Fang Liu,  mezzo soprano, Katherine Kelton, and clarinetist, Howard Klug.  Catherine Bringerud serves as Coordinator of Accompanying at Butler University Music School.
