Celebrating the most wonderful time of the year, Kathryn Zaremba and Jeremy Ney will perform an evening of music and conversation on December 21st. The couple, who met in 2010, were married in Oklahoma in 2011. Kathryn, who became a household name in Broken Arrow when she was cast at the age of 9 years old as "Annie" in New York City. She has recently launched her own house of design called Kate Zaremba Company, producing prints, wallpaper, and much more. Jeremy is the Music Specialist at The Phillips Collection, a Modern Art Museum in Washington, D.C. The two have been making music together since they met and have performed at several venues in the Washington Area.

Born in Broken Arrow, Kathryn Zaremba didn't have an ordinary childhood. After performing in the high school's production of 'Annie' directed by JoJo Nichols, she would go on to grow up on theatre sets and sound stages. A career as an actress and singer, both in theater and television, would send Kathryn from New York to Los Angeles and back again.

Originating the title role of Annie in "Annie Warbucks" in 1994, The New York Times described Ms. Zaremba as "very small, even for a 9-year-old, but her voice, pitched somewhere between a bugle and a gym teacher's whistle, is enormous…The kid can belt, she seems as un-self-conscious as a kitten." Kathryn was honored to perform for President Bill Clinton at the White House, the United Nations, The Macy's Day Parade, Rockefeller Plaza, numerous benefit concerts from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and alongside artists from Bernadette Peters to the Olsen twins.

Kathryn was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award for her role as Annie and continued to do theatre, television, cartoons and music recordings until the age of 14 when she chose to return to her hometown of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma to be a "real" kid.

Kathryn received a Masters of Arts in Exhibition Design at the Corcoran College of Art & Design. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts Studies from the Kansas City Art Institute where she studied fiber art, textile design and sculpture.

Surrounded by artists and the imaginary worlds of stage and screen, it is no wonder her career quickly shifted into the visual arts. This year the launch of 'Kate Zaremba Company' has kept her busy designing and illustrating prints, drawings, wallpaper, and textiles which are sold throughout the world. She recently finished her first children's book titled "The Story of Zimbie Zooella" about a little girl with a giant imagination.

Jeremy Ney is the Music Specialist at The Phillips Collection, America's first Museum of Modern Art in Washington, D.C. where he produces a yearly chamber music concert series. He regularly contributes program notes for concerts, and undertakes a broad range of different duties to assist the Sunday Concerts program, which was recently quoted as "The Best in Washington" in The Washington Post.

Born in Suffolk, England Jeremy studied classical piano. He attended the University of Leeds located in West Yorkshire, England. Jeremy went on to work at the Arts Council of London until 2011 before moving to Washington. Jeremy maintains a private piano studio of 10 students aged 7-13, and also plays keyboard in a local D.C. group called Buildings.
