Merrimack College offers voice classes by the talented musician Cristi Catt. Each fall, group voice class and private voice lessons give students the opportunity to develop their vocal techniques as they work on a wide range of songs.

Spring 2020 End-of-Semester Performance
While voice studio classes and lessons typically end with a public performance in the Atrium of the Rogers Center for the Arts, this year we’ve moved to a virtual format due to the coronavirus pandemic. Over the second half of this semester, students took lessons with Catt over Zoom and produced their own recordings with the technology available in their homes. Many of the songs are accompanied by accomplished piano faculty member Sam Hong. Other videos feature family and friends as noted on individual videos.
