Welcome! 

I am a classical singer and writer, passionate about sharing these two art forms with new (and existing!) audiences. I believe that the arts should be both accessible and approachable to anyone who wants to engage!

Currently based: Paris, France.

"A feature of this production is the opportunity for younger talent to gain experience and the three genii – Barbara Graham, Katherine McIndoe and Kayla Collingwood – sing and manage their puppets with great skill."

 

- Michael Gilchrist, theatreview

"Two love songs, one from the dolce mezzo of Kayla Collingwood...underlined the extraordinary vocal quality which exists in such singers New Zealand."

 

- Sam Edwards, stuff.co.nz

"...Collingwood comes closest to nailing the Broadway pizzazz in her big aria, cataloguing the horrors of Z-grade movies with flurries of coloratura and spurts of rumba frenzy."
