Soprano Katherine Terrell and baritone Lewis Von Schlambusch have  appeared with the most prestigious orchestras in North America in repertoire ranging from opera and oratorio to operetta and symphony "pops".  Having gained particular acclaim in the symphony "pops" circuit, "Kathy and Lew", as their audiences have affectionately grown to call them, have performed with the symphonies of Chicago, Boston, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles (at the Hollywood Bowl), Cincinnati, Detroit, Toronto, Houston, Atlanta, St. Louis, Vancouver and many more.  A fifteen year association with the "King of Pops", Maestro Erich Kunzel, led Kathy and Lew to a star studded musical extravaganza called Sympantasy with the Cincinnati Symphony, that was taped by Disney/Touchtone Pictures for broadcast on PBS Television.  Also taped for television was their exciting debut in China performing with the combined symphonies of Guangzhou and the Hong Kong Sinfonietta in a three city tour of China.

For an audience of 15,000, Kathy and Lew debuted with the Boston Pops in a concert featuring Broadway's Greatest Hits.  A debut with the Utah Symphony also took the duo on a three city tour in Utah with their newly commissioned George Gershwin show, Crazy For George!  By popular demand, the duo returned to the St. Louis Symphony at Queeny Park for their seventeenth consecutive season with Maestro/arranger Richard Hayman.  The duo also traveled with the Syracuse Symphony on a seven city tour with their The Best of Broadway concerts.  Kathy and Lew returned to the Erie Philharmonic for a concert entitled On Broadway with Maestro Jeff Tyzik conducting. With Maestro Steven Larson and the Rockford Symphony, they performed their increasingly popular Crazy For George! concerts.  This past season, debuts took the duo to the Portland Symphony in Maine, and the Champaign-Urbana Symphony in Broadway Favorites concerts.  A concert featuring the music of Cole Porter and George Gershwin marked their debut with the Southwest Michigan Symphony and Maestro Robert Vodnoy conducting.

This season, more debuts take Kathy and Lew to the Stamford Symphony and the Birmingham Philharmonic.  Next season, they will debut with the Phoenix Symphony featuring Broadway Favorites with Maestro Robert Moody conducting. 

Seasoned and polished performers, Kathy and Lew have been lavishly praised for their outstanding theatricality, their compelling chemistry and their beautiful sonorous voices.  These versatile artists perform, choreograph and narrate their concerts in such a fashion that audiences rise to their feet in unanimous standing ovations time and time again.
