Katie Snelling

Viola

Clayton High School

Katie Snelling is 15 years old and a sophomore at Clayton High School. This is her first year participating in the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra. She discovered her passion for music after transitioning from violin to viola at the age of 12. Katie enjoys writing for her school newspaper, The Globe, and horseback riding with her closest friends at their favorite farm. Last year, Katie participated in the Missouri All-State Orchestra, which was an amazing and impactful experience. She would like to thank her wonderful viola teacher, Laura Reycraft for helping her become a stronger, more confident musician. Katie would also like to recognize her family and friends for supporting and inspiring her.
