As a middle schooler growing up in northeastern Jefferson County outside Louisville, Amy Kidd had discovered the fruits of madrigal singing and found them quite to her taste. Her school featured a polished madrigal ensemble, whose members looked forward each year to a performance in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. When Amy moved to Lexington with her family, she enrolled in the choral program at her high school but found that something was amiss.

...
Amy joined just in time to sing a medieval Christmas solo in the very first Center youth performance — before the group even had a name.
Recently Amy looked back on her three-year-long experience in MUSICA. What she found most rewarding about it was not the “perks,” but rather the organization’s essence itself – a serious, focused and purposeful approach to learning the music. Too, she relished the opportunity to sing in several foreign languages. (Spanish became her specialty in college.) And she was especially stimulated by the rich music history perspective that vocal coach Donna Boyd brought into the rehearsal sessions.
When Amy became a member of Musick’s Company in 2000, five years had passed since her graduation from MUSICA. In between, she attended Miami University, transferred to Transylvania, sang in the choral program there and graduated with a double major in History & English. She worked as an Americorps Volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, and began graduate work in the U.K. College of Architecture’s historical preservation program with a fellowship at the Bluegrass Trust. Currently Amy is employed as an editor at the Kentucky Historical Society.
Perhaps it was her range of interests in things historical that brought her back to singing in historically-informed performances with the Center for Old Music. She seems to be enjoying it as she did in her previous life, and the group seems to benefit from her rejuvenating presence. Veteran Musick’s Company singer Mary Reed had this to say about her fellow high soprano: “Amy and I often sing the same line, and I love having her up there with me.
