Cathy Gansen - Tenor
Cathy started singing publicly at age 7 in church choirs and as one of five Gansen Sisters. She first sang with the Oakland Jazz Choir in 1997, and after a 6-year hiatus, rejoined in 2014. Prior to that she sang for 10 years with the 3-person Bay Area vocal group, Caught in the Act. She was turned onto jazz in college while singing in choirs with the Student Musical Activities Dept. at UC Berkeley. She feels that jazz is the most satisfying of vocal forms as it is the perfect creative expression of freedom, connection and collaboration.
