"I have had the esteemed privilege of singing with the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus under Kathleen's artistic direction and leadership. She is an amazing conductor, very intelligent and personable. She is a great teacher and mentor! She is a true philanthropist and humanitarian and I would love to work with her in the future. I truly recommend Kathleen due to her outstanding qualities both personally and professionally. "
