Mrs. Katie Cudworth (formerly Meo) is a product of Clinton, NJ, and the NHV Regional High School District. While a student at North Hunterdon, she had as teachers her current colleagues Mr. Angeline and Mr. Andrews. Then, while earning her Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Lebanon Valley College, she met and befriended her other colleague and team teacher, Mr. Hopta. Mrs. Cudworth feels very fortunate to be surrounded by such talented, knowledgeable and familiar faces each day while here at North!
Mrs. C’s career dream has always been to direct choirs of the caliber of North Hunterdon vocal ensembles. Getting to conduct the high school choirs of which she was once a member (in the same room where she learned her first choral skills) is a true blessing. Mrs. Cudworth has worked as a guest facilitator of choral workshops at South Hunterdon Regional High School, Clinton Township Middle School, Clinton Public School, Union Township School, Round Valley School, Ethel Hoppock School, Franklin Township School, Belvidere United Methodist Church, and Immaculate Conception School. She leads worship and cantors regularly at St. Paul Church in Flemington, St. John Neumann Church in Califon, and Immaculate Conception Church in Annandale. Mrs. Cudworth maintains a private voice studio based in Clinton, and she studied voice with Steven Snow for six years.
Mrs. C’s heart also finds its home in the theater. Over the past two decades, she has performed in many productions with various schools and community theaters, including North Hunterdon Theatre Organization, Lebanon Valley College’s Wig and Buckle, Show Kids Invitational Theatre, Somerset Valley Players, Phillipsburg Summer Youth Theatre, Notre Dame Theatre Company, Light Opera of New Jersey, and Clinton Area Stage Troupe. In June 2008 she had the opportunity to be a part of Scott Alan’s “Monday Nights, New Voices” concert at the Duplex Cabaret Theatre in NYC. Several of Mrs. Cudworth’s vocal and theater students perform professionally and have gone on to win/be nominated for NJ ACT Perry Awards and Paper Mill Playhouse Rising Star Awards, as well as be accepted into such artistic programs as the Paper Mill Playhouse Summer Conservatory, Paper Mill Playhouse Broadway Show Choir, James Madison University, University of Michigan, Carnegie Mellon University, Pace University, NYU Tisch School of the Arts, and Temple University.
Mrs. Cudworth enjoys writing her own pop compositions and performing with her band (The Power). She spends the rest of her time singing wherever live music is played!
Mrs. Cudworth currently directs Chamber Choir, Concert Choir (co-taught with Mr. Hopta), Freshman Choir, and Show Choir. She also teaches Voice Lessons.
In previous years, she has taught History of Rock and Roll, Madrigal Singers, Music Theory I, and String Orchestra.
Mrs. Cudworth’s duties also include sponsoring students for NJ Region II, All State, and All Eastern Choirs, coordinating the annual Prism Concert, serving as Vocal Director and Producer for the Winter Musical, and producing the Spring Play.
