Meet Kate Sinclair

Kate began playing piano and flute as a child, and by 13 she was playing in orchestras and concert bands, touring Germany and Denmark and playing The Royal Albert Hall in London.  She toured with the Welsh National Youth orchestra at 19 and played flute with the University of Birmingham symphony orchestra.  During her GP training Kate found Sweet  Adelines, and since her first Rivertones' rehearsal in March 2000 she's been hooked.  Kate became a Certified Director in 2011 and Master Director in 2014. Kate is also an experienced quartetter, having sung with Primadonna, Total Addiction and Cosmic in national competitions.  She is also a judge for Young Women in Harmony Regional and National competitions.

Besides working at a local medical practice, Kate is married to Brent and is a busy Mum to two teenage children and Milo, the chocolate Labrador.

Her vision is to have a fun-filled and high-level performing chorus at all times with a broad range of repertoire that is appealing to members and audiences.
