Catherine Lippitt, soprano with Brad Mahon, guitar

Catherine Lippitt began her musical training in the Calgary Children’s Choir (Calgary Youth Choir). Through that training, Catherine sang both as a chorister and a soloist with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, and travelled to Wales to take part in the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod. She went on to sing with the Mount Royal Youth Choir, Ad Libitum Vocal Ensemble (Calgary), the Alberta, Manitoba and National Youth Choirs and the Festival Ensemble for the European Music Festival in Stuttgart, Germany with Maestro Helmuth Rilling.

She holds a Bachelor of Music from the University of Manitoba and a Masters of Music from the University of Western Ontario, both in Vocal Performance.

She also has a Licentiate Diploma from the Western Board of Music. Catherine is a founding member of the Canadian Chamber Choir. This group is made up of singers from across Canada, and their mandate is to create community through Choral Singing. Their most recent tour was in Saskatchewan, and culminated in a performance of The Armed Man, by Karl Jenkins, with the Greystone Singers and the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra. The group’s second recording, Sacred Reflections of Canada – A Canadian Mass, was nominated for a Juno in 2016.

In Calgary, Catherine is a regular performer in the ProArts@Noon series. She is a member of La VIe, a six voice ladies vocal ensemble, and for many years, she was the Soprano Section-leader with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra Chorus.



Classical guitarist Brad Mahon regularly appears nationally and internationally as an award-winning and acclaimed guitarist, teacher, adjudicator, clinician, and lecturer.

In January 2017, Brad moved back to Calgary full-time to assume the role of Director at Mount Royal University’s Conservatory. Formerly, he was Manager, Visual and Performing Arts at the Medicine Hat College Conservatory, and before that, Head of the Conservatory of Performing Arts at the University of Regina.

Dr. Mahon also continues to maintain his long-standing affiliation with the Royal Conservatory, Toronto.
