Ladue Horton Watkins High School

Katie Shaw, a sophomore at Ladue Horton Watkins High School, is a violinist in the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra. Her interest in music began when she started playing the piano at the age of five. When she was in fourth grade, she started playing the violin with her school music program. In 2015-16, she performed with the Young People’s Symphonic Orchestra, and she is now in her second season with the SLSYO. Currently, she is taking private lessons from Joo Kim.

Aside from music, Katie participates in activities such as her school newspaper, Science Olympiad, and Speech and Debate. In her free time, she also enjoys drawing, sleeping, and reading a good book.

Katie would like to thank Joo Kim, her parents, and numerous others who have helped her reach this point in her musical career. She is also extremely grateful for the opportunity to play with the SLSYO.
