Whitney Claire Kaufman, singer and actress, appears as guest vocalist with symphony orchestras throughout the United States including Dallas, Pacific, Cincinnati, Seattle, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, and the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center. Internationally she has appeared with the London Symphony Orchestra, RTE Concert Orchestra in Dublin, Melbourne Symphony, Calgary Philharmonic, and the Malaysian Philharmonic. Whitney toured for over two years in the North American tour of the Broadway mega-hit, Mamma Mia!
She understudied the leading rolls of Sophie and Lisa. Her performance as Sophie garnered rave reviews, including the Boston Globe
which reported, ‘Boston’s opening night was a knockout. With her pure, clear voice—gentle or forceful as called for, but always beautifully placed—she really deserves to vault straight to Broadway. Plus, her acting is as compelling as her singing’. She has appeared on stage, both in musicals and dramatic theatre. These include productions of Cabaret
and A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Her film, television, and recording credits include the ABC hit series Modern Family, That Championship Season, Up All Night, and as characters in several MGM animated series. Whitney graduated with honours from Chapman University in Orange, California, with a BFA in Theatre Performance.
