Katherine Milliken (MODG '22) won first place in the grades 11-12 division of the Manchester Community Music School 2021 Strings Performance Competition for her performance of Violin Concerto in A minor by Jean-Baptiste Accolay! She also recently performed in a quintet providing background music at a dinner hosted by her church's Respect Life Committee.

Katherine has always loved music and began piano lessons when she was 5.  She began studying the violin at age 9, and has played in the Maine Youth Orchestra and the New Hampshire Youth Ensembles Concert Orchestra (intermediate level). Last year she played with the New Hampshire Youth Ensembles Symphony Orchestra (advanced level). She has also very much enjoyed singing in the youth schola at St. Joseph's Cathedral, and playing the mandolin with her family's informal band.  

Congratulations, Katherine!
