Minka Wiltz

"Fast-forward a few years, put Minka... in Atlanta with the right vocal coach, [Catherine Dunne], and she speaks of a future in opera." Click here to read the entire Atlanta Journal/Constitution article.

Christina Reaves

Christina Reaves who began her training with Catherine Dunne in the fall of 2001 went on to get her degree in vocal performance at Georgia State, shown here on the cover with Dr. Peter Marshall, pianist for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

Tony Moore

The immense versatility in this type of training is highlighted by Tony's claim to fame in the heavy metal band Riot, signed by CBS Records, Inc. during the 80's.

~The Immense Versatility~

Voice with Catherine runs the gamut from Opera to heavy metal and on and on. To further exhibit the versatility in this universal type of vocal training, note the following artists: Gospel singer, Latarsha Horne; and Latin funk performer, Andres Soler; and Broadway bound students, Joanna Richardson and Will Ramseur.

Each follows their own unique path musically and yet each benefits from the opening, strengthening and purity of voice one receives from the bel canto method of vocal training.



Latarsha sings with the soul-inspiring full gospel baptist church, New Beginning (with Bishop Morton at the helm) and has given her life over to Jesus. Her incredible voice is just one of the gifts God has given this wonderfully talented singer. Latarsha's style of G'Opera blends Gospel and Opera, creating a new genre.



Andres Soler means to give his gift back to his people. Fueled by the need in the poor neighborhoods of Medellin, it is his desire to bring the the message of hope back to his homeland of Columbia.

Noted below are Broadway competitors Will Ramseur and Joanna Richardson. Training is key to attaining "triple threat" status the Broadway stage demands, and so each immerses themselves in their training, in order to achieve the level of skill and technique needed to compete in such an arena. Will continues his studies at the illustrious Boston Conservatory next Fall, and Joanna goes on for her 3rd season at Tulane's Summer Lyric Theatre in New Orleans, to return to Atlanta's Lyric Theatre as both Choreographer and featured performer.

Joanna Richardson

Joanna, featured dancer with the famed Rockettes of RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL, is soon on her way to becoming a "triple threat." Broadway's coveted titled of "triple threat" requires that you excell in all 3 disciplines of Voice, Dance & Acting. The competition is so fierce in NYC that you train rigorously in all 3 in order to compete. Joanna has added her vocal studies in Catherine's "bel canto" Voice Studio to wow audiences throughout the land as she is showcased internationally and nationally.

Will Ramseur

Will's foundation in voice began in Catherine's studio, studying "bel canto" — a method which preserves, strengthens and illuminates voices. He has gone on to win featured roles in such productions as Kenny Leon's "The Wiz" performed at The Rialto last Christmas 2007. Literally hundreds auditioned, but the role of the Tin Man went to Will Ramseur.

Will was also chosen to be one of the featured performers for the "Rising Talents" production, shown at The Rialto last Winter. This young man has joined Catherine's troupe on many an occasion — at the "Triple Threat" Showcase done at The Alliance Summer of 2006, as well as many community oriented productions that served to help out people in need — The Shepherd Spinal Center, an Assisted Living Home one Christmas, as well as going into youth detention centers.

Will is well on his way to being everything a performer ever hoped for — a "triple threat" in the making.




Season #5 of American Idol finds Kinnik Sky to be one of the Top 12 Female performers chosen that year. Kinnik studied with Catherine in preparation for this time in her life. Earlier, Kinnik studied under Catherine in the Musical Theatre Workshop partnered with Nick Conti's Professional Actor's Studio (Summer 2003). Catherine later on worked with Kinnik in the Broadway revue "A Night At The Tony's (December 2003) — to help raise money for the charity "ChildKind." The Atlanta Journal continued to contact Catherine to ask her opinion as the seasons unfolded on AMERICAN IDOL.
