Kennedy McAlister is thrilled to join the WolfPAC team! Originally from Oklahoma, she grew up singing, dancing, and acting at the Jim and Ida Williams Theater in Ardmore, OK. She got her undergraduate degree in Vocal Performance at Oklahoma Christian University, and made a full circle when she directed in the Jim and Ida Williams Summer Youth Theater Program during her undergrad years. She has appeared as “Nina” in In the Heights, “Hope Harcourt” in Anything Goes, and “Gertrude” in Seussical the Musical, among others, and has been a featured soloist in a number of other productions.
Currently, Kennedy resides in Boston, MA where she is a master’s candidate in conducting. She is a graduate conductor for the NEC Choirs, the assistant conductor for the Arlington-Belmont Chorale, and is always looking for ensembles featuring new or less-popularly performed repertoire.
Musical excellence is a passion of hers, but even more so, creating community through music is at the top of her priority list. She believes that musical theater teaches several important foundational life lessons that help young people grow into the well-rounded and life-giving leaders of tomorrow. She strives to foster communal and personal development and to encourage others in all their musical endeavors.
