She attended CSULB as a violin performance major before graduating from Manhattan School of Music as a viola performance major, studying with Arianna Bronne and Raphael Bronstein. As a scholarship and fellowship recipient, KC attended numerous master classes with notable viola teachers including Donald McInnes, Karen Tuttle, Walter Trampler and Gerald Stannick. Until January 2008, KC was active as a freelance orchestral and chamber music performer appearing in Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center’s Metropolitan Opera House, Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall and the State Theater, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Among the groups with which she has performed are the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, New York Chamber Soloists, American Symphony Orchestra, Greenwich, New Haven and Stamford Symphony Orchestras in CT, the ballet orchestras for the Matsuyama, Australian, Royal and Kirov Ballet Companies, and the pit orchestras for various Broadway shows. In the mid/late ‘90s KC toured Japan with both The New York Pops and the New York Symphonic Ensemble. In the spring of 1998 she performed in two concerts with the American Symphony Orchestra in Sao Paulo, Brazil. KC was a member of the orchestra of the Sarasota Opera Association during the 2000 and 2001 seasons. Now residing in the Bay Area of CA, KC is a Traditional and Suzuki Violin and Viola teacher at Holy Names University, The Crowden Center, and Sycamore Strings Academy.
