Katherine began playing the oboe at the age of 14 in Northamptonshire before moving to Edinburgh in 2010 to study with Joe Houghton at St Mary’s Music School. After completing her Bachelors degree at the Royal Academy of Music in 2017, Katherine continued her studies on the Academy’s Master of Arts course. During her studies she learnt with Christopher Cowie, Ian Hardwick and Celia Nicklin, and cor anglais with Sue Bohling and Jill Crowther. Alongside her postgraduate degree Katherine was also keen to expand her opportunities outside of study, and she successfully auditioned for the 2017 London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Foyle Future Firsts Development Programme and then the Philharmonia Orchestra’s Martin Musical Scholarship Fund Instrumental Fellowship Programme in 2018.

An active orchestral musician, Katherine has appeared with orchestras including BBC Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra and London Philharmonic Orchestra and has enjoyed performing in concert halls across the country and abroad. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including all three of the Academy oboe and cor anglais prizes, as well as a Dewar Arts Award, a Sir James Caird Travelling Scholarships Trust Award, a Harold Craxton Memorial Trust Award and awards from the Countess of Munster Musical Trust who supported her through her two years of postgraduate study.
