Students forget that the people teaching them the Pythagorean theorem have lives outside of the classroom.

Math teacher Kathryn Nicolaus has a passion for singing and is currently performing with the Kansas City Symphony Chorus.

She has always loved to sing and decided to take it one step further by joining the Choral Voice of the Symphony.

When her and her husband went to the symphony for the first time, the chorus was singing and she turned to her husband and said, “Why am I not doing that?”

The journey of becoming a part of the chorus was difficult.

“It’s a pretty rigorous audition. About one in every four people that audition make the chorus,” Nicolaus said.

Her favorite memories come from the performances when the chorus gets to have fun with the pieces.

“I enjoy the Christmas performances the most. It always just feels like you are spreading good cheer and we get to be a little silly. We get to wear silly hats and engage the audience a little more,” Nicolaus said.

Nicolaus has managed to keep up with one passion and make a career of the other.
