Katherine Domingo ’96


Katherine Domingo ’96 passed away on March 18 following an eight-year battle with breast cancer. Born in the Philippines, Kathy lived in Bloomington, Indiana, since 1996. She earned her master’s and doctoral degrees at the Jacobs School of Music. Kathy served as president of My Stroke of Insight Inc., a company she ran with Jill Bolte Taylor, a Bloomington neuroanatomist and author. Most recently founding and directing the Bloomington Peace Choir, Kathy’s lifelong passion of helping to heal the planet through music began when she was named the assistant director of the International Vocal Ensemble in 1999, for which she was appointed director in 2006. She served as a full-time faculty member of the Jacobs School for four years. In 2004 Kathy was a Fulbright Fellow in the Philippines, studying the choral music of her native country for her dissertation on Philippine nationalism and music. She considered her eight-year battle with breast cancer to be one of her greatest blessings, crediting the experience with providing her with a new and enhanced perspective of the importance of life’s daily miracles and encounters with people. She will be remembered as a UGA in the River Cluster and as a chamber singer with a big smile and a huge heart. Kathy is survived by Taylor, her parents, Romeo and Imelda Domingo, brother Wilbert, sister Wilma, one nephew, three nieces and many friends and chosen family.
