A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Kaitlin teaches voice lessons and also serves as the Office Manager for CSYSA and Vocal Coach for the Ascent Big Band. Mrs. Privara earned a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Cedarville University, learning classical and jazz voice from Beth Cram Porter and Dr. Chet Jenkins. During her time in undergrad, she served as the Music Director of CU's premier a cappella group, The Inversions.
