SAA Member

Caterina Yetto has performed in a multitude of master classes, including those given by The Julliard Quartet, Eugene Drucker of The Emerson Quartet, Karla Donehew-Perez of The Catalyst Quartet, and David Kim of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra. She has also been presented with a wide variety of other performance opportunities. She was the Associate Concertmaster for the Master Players Concert Series 2016 Concertized Production of Die Zauberflöte and the following year she returned to the series as a soloist alongside her professor, Xiang Gao, as well as one of the four violins for two pipa octets, arranged to be performed on four pipas and four violins for that program. While in graduate school Caterina was the Concertmaster for the world premiere of O’Riordan’s The Masque of Edgar Allen Poe and was a member of the UD Graduate String Quartet.

Since graduating in 2017, Caterina has moved back to southern New Hampshire to find her niche as a violinist in today’s fast paced world, wanting to focus on using her music to give back to where she has always called home. She joined the Orchestra of Indian Hill’s violin section in fall of 2018, having performed with them regularly the previous year, and is currently on faculty at Sinfonietta Strings of Greater Nashua and Rosita Lee Music Center in Hudson. Caterina loves to teach and been expanding her own private studio in addition to Sinfonietta and Rosita Lee. Her love of teaching comes naturally, having a music teacher for a mother, and volunteered for the violin program where her mom worked at Infant Jesus School in Nashua from 2011 through 2019.

Caterina received her Master of Music degree from the University of Delaware, and her Bachelor of Music from Oberlin Conservatory of Music. During her six years of higher education she was lucky enough to be taught and mentored by Xiang Gao, Lawrence Stomberg, James Allen Anderson, and Gregory Fulkerson.
