Patty Kennedy (LeClair) grew up in Seattle, WA, and from a very young age sang in choirs and took piano, saxophone and voice lessons. She earned her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance at the Conservatory of Music at Lawrence University in Appleton, WI, and moved to Chicago soon after completing her degree to pursue a career in music. Patty is an active performer and sings with several professional choirs throughout the city. She is most well known for her membership in Chicago’s premier women’s ensemble, La Caccina. Patty is especially passionate about working with young children, and has been teaching Kindermusik since 2012. She hopes to bring children and families the same joy that she finds in music, and works to inspire exploring one’s self through the mediums of music and movement.
