About Me

I'm a classic movie fan who doubles as a jazz singer. You can check out my musician webpage here:  http://www.marycatherinemp.com. Singing jazz enables me to do what I love most: perform jazz standards, many of which had their start in classic film. I love being able to tell an audience which movie a song was from when I perform; it's my personal homage to the films I love.

I hold an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Music (Voice Performance) and Drama. I took a few film courses in university too, which were among my favourites. During my time there, I wrote a paper on Gene Kelly's contribution to musical film for an American Film survey course and an essay on the film "Leave Her to Heaven" for a Film Noir course.

My favourite actresses: Judy Garland, Doris Day, Rita Hayworth, Ginger Rogers, Bette Davis, Jennifer Jones, Kim Novak, Leslie Caron, Esther Williams, Gene Tierney, Debbie Reynolds

My favourite actors: Gene Kelly, Jack Lemmon, Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, Van Johnson, William Holden, Dana Andrews, Jimmy Stewart, Rock Hudson, Robert Walker
