Katy Miner, voted one of Buffalo’s favorite jazz vocalists, brings a diverse yet rich repertoire of singing experience in jazz, musical theatre, pop, and the Great American Songbook. Singing with her quintet since 2010 and the Cabaret Big Band since 2013, she has performed at the Colored Musicians Club (CMC) Jazz Festival, the East Aurora Music Festival, the Lewiston Jazz Festival, the Olcott Jazz Festival, the Erie County Fair, and other notable Western New York venues, including Pausa Art House, 189 Public House, and the Roycroft Inn.
Ms. Miner was recently the featured vocalist with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra in 2017’s John Morris Russell’s Holiday Pops concert, and also performed in concert versions of 2007’s West Side Story (Rosalia), and 2010’s The Music Man (Alma Hix) with the BPO. Ms. Miner was a professional singer and section leader with the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus in the soprano and alto sections from 2004-2007, and was the mezzo soloist for Handel’s Messiah in 2007.
Ms. Miner has performed in numerous WNY theaters since 2007, most recently in Sophisticated Ladies and The Light in the Piazza (Signora Naccarelli). She performed in Nickel City Opera’s 2016 world premiere production of SHOT! by Persis Vehar at Shea’s Buffalo Theatre. Ms. Miner’s voice can be heard in commercials and on several pop, rock and jazz recordings of her own and others. In 2018, she joined Phil Sims–and a slew of some of the best musicians in WNY–to form the 17-piece Musicians of Buffalo Big Band (MOBBB). The MOBBB will perform monthly at Sportsmen’s Tavern as artists in residence being February 2018.
