Katherine McDaniel is the Founder and Director of Synkroniciti, an arts incubator based in Houston, TX. Synkroniciti creates collaborative projects for artists of any discipline working in any medium.
Katherine is a classically trained opera singer who has appeared onstage at Houston Grand Opera, and has collaborated with numerous artists in Houston, New York, and Florida. She was Program Director and a founding member at RESONANZ, a summer festival for opera singers and the brainchild of former Metropolitan Opera and Lindemann Artist Heidi Skok.
Katherine’s first creative venture was The Other Woman with ChiaroScuro Vocal Ensemble, an innovative blend of opera arias, ensembles and her own original poetry. Recently, Katherine had three poems commissioned by Houston Grand Opera for Houston Artists Respond, part of the Home and Place Initiative of HGOco. Nubia’s Shoes, Yo soy un Corazòn and Drumming were inspired by videos of senior adults at Baker Ripley Community Center in Houston. The poems tell the stories of Latin American women who immigrated to the United States.
