Kathleen Holyoak, award-winning composer, pianist, and organist was born in Hawaii, raised in Idaho, and currently resides in Arizona.
Music became her passion when she began taking piano lessons at age 5. She received a Bachelor of Music from BYU with an organ emphasis but it wasn’t until her four daughters were raised that she began composing, less than 20 years ago. During that time she has written more than 200 songs and instrumental arrangements.
Her music has been performed around the globe, including the White House for Pres. and Mrs. Bush and the private residence of Vice-Pres. and Mrs. Cheney for Christmas gatherings, in Russia, Ukraine, England, South America, and Africa.
She and her husband have participated in many humanitarian trips and most recently returned from Uganda where Kathleen performed, gave firesides, and music workshops.
Here are two wonderful and distinct pieces composed by Kathleen. She is diverse in her styles. Her music is always a pleasure to perform and enjoy.
