Katherine is a pianist, accompanist, chamber musician and animateur. A recent graduate from Christ Church, Oxford she now studies at the Royal College of Music under Niel Immelman. Her early piano studies were with Kent-based concert pianist Ronald Smith which gained her a Music Scholarship at St. Edmund’s School, then as a pupil of Yonty Solomon at the age of 15 when she won Marlowe Young Musician of the year. At this time she was invited to give her first solo public recital in London, and since then she has performed as solo pianist, orchestral pianist and repetiteur in Europe and the USA. Katherine was accepted into the Pro Corda International Chamber Music Academy, where she won the Course Prize, and she worked on Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire as a student at Dartington International Summer School in 2010, and Ligeti's Kammerkonzert as a student at the London Sinfonietta Academy 2011. This season, Katherine's engagements have included performances at the Sounds New Contemporary Music Festival, Kings Place, and the Clore Ballroom at the Royal Festival Hall. She was delighted to give the UK premiere of Varese's own arrangement of 'Ameriques' for 8 hands with the Francoise-Green Piano Duo and to perform works by Graham Fitkin at the 2011 BBC Proms Plus series broadcast on Radio 3.
Rehearsals Resume in September
The orchestra expect to resume rehearsals at St Stephens school from Wednesday 16th September.
The Committee will meet at the school on the 9th Septmeber to complete a risk assessment and sort the logistics of ensuring we meet within Government guidelines, and advise all members of exact arrangements shortly afterwards.
Canterbury Orchestra’s Winter Concert presents three of the mainstays of the orchestral repertoire that are firmly lodged in the hearts and minds of concertgoers everywhere, opening with Mozart’s sparkling orchestration of themes from his opera, followed by Dvorak’s soulful and moving work for cello and orchestra and concluding with Beethoven’s turbulent fifth symphony.
