Katelyn Emerson, Organist


The organist Katelyn Emerson talks with classical host Sydney Anderson about returning to her home state of Maine to perform on the Mighty Kotzschmar Organ. Hear what makes the Kotzschmar special, and get an inside look into the life of a professional organist.

Sydney Anderson is new to Maine, and has lived all over the country from the Midwest to the West Coast, most recently in La Crosse, Wisconsin. She is now living in and loving Portland. She has a background in classical voice and a B.A. in Communications from the University of Wisconsin Superior. She has worked in both television and radio, and has had the privilege of working with WDRT and WFMT in the past. When she’s not hosting a program or searching for hidden musical gems in the Maine Public Classical library, she’s probably working on a knitting project or lost in a good book.
