Jamestown Concert Association Presents Katherine Siochi

Venue Location: 
Date & Time: 
Friday, October 13, 2017 - 8:00pm

Gold Medalist of 2016 USA Harp Competition

Although Katherine Siochi was shocked by her acceptance into the prestigious Juilliard School six years ago, she has proven through both her Bachelor’s and Master’s programs that she was well deserving. Praised by the New York Times as “excellent,” Katherine is an award-winning harp soloist and newly appointed principal harpist of the Sarasota Orchestra. She started her musical studies with the piano when she was 5 years old, and began learning the harp at age 9. Initially creating a fan base with covers of popular songs on her YouTube channel, she has gone on to become the 2016 gold medalist of the 10th USA International Harp Competition. This is one of the world's most prestigious harp contests and she is only the second American to win the prize since 1989. Katherine has also received many awards in national harp competitions, including first prize in the American Harp Society's Young Professional division, earning her the title of AHS Concert Artist for 2015-2017. As Concert Artist, Katherine is presenting recitals and master classes in over 20 cities across the US. Her performances have been featured twice on NPR’s radio program “From The Top,” on New York Public Radio for WQXR's "Young Artist Showcase," and on "Performance Today.”
