Katie Yap, Viola

Katie is a violist embarking on a many-faceted career. She has recently been appointed Associate Principal Viola with Orchestra Victoria, and in the last few years has been a part of programs such as the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s Emerging Artist Program, the Australian World Orchestra, the Australian National Academy of Music, and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra Academy, among many others.

She has always had a passion for creating her own music, composing casually through university and more recently, exploring improvisation in many forms. Katie has been involved in many recordings, both classical and popular, most recently of folk artist Packwood’s mammoth four-part album, Vertumnus.

Her love of music stems from its capacity to communicate to many different kinds of people, across languages and cultures.
