Caterina Yetto 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 Anderson, and Gregory Fulkerson. In the orchestral setting Caterina has held both Associate Concertmaster and Concertmaster positions in the University of Delaware Symphony Orchestra. She was also the Associate Concertmaster for the Master Players Concert Series 2016 Concertized Production of Die Zauberflöte. Caterina is active in smaller ensembles as well, having returned to the Master Players Concert Series in 2017 for two newly arranged pipa and violin octets as well as a soloist. She also held the concertmaster seat for University of Delaware Opera Theater’s production of Glass and Moran’s The Juniper Tree and O’Riordan’s The Masque of Edgar Allen Poe, a world premiere. More recently, Caterina has been an active substitute violinist in both Symphony New Hampshire and the Orchestra of Indian Hill.
“I have always found that chamber music, small ensembles that have no conductor, is the purest (and my favorite) form of music, as each member of the ensemble has to communicate to the others completely through the music. I love that we can all be connected without having to say a word, and nothing has ever worked like that for me quite as well as music has. I strive to imbue my teaching with that level of connection so to inspire my students to seek out that higher understanding as well. Music should be a fun, communal activity for everyone to share in!”
