Dixie State College Music Major to Participate in Prestigious Brevard Music Festival

DSC student violinist KateLyn Wall, a junior music major from Centerville, Utah, was selected to participate in the upcoming Brevard Music Festival.

ST. GEORGE Dixie State College student violinist KateLyn Wall has been selected to attend the prestigious Brevard Music Festival summer festival this June 24-through-August 7, held on the campus of Brevard College in Brevard, N.C. Ms. Wall, a junior music major from Centerville, Utah, auditioned for a spot at the Festival this past January and was not only accepted, but received a scholarship to attend the event.

Students from colleges and universities from across the country apply to attend this competitive music festival. During the eight-week event, students will have the opportunity to work and learn from such artists as Keith Lockhart and Yo Yo Ma, among other composers and conductors.

“This is a great opportunity for KateLyn,” says Dr. Paul Abegg, DSC director of string studies. “We couldn’t have a better representative for Dixie State. She is a hard worker, diligent and teachable student as well as a talented violinist and will be a wonderful ambassador for our institution.”

Wall has played the violin since the age of 12. She has performed in a number of orchestras, including the Davis Youth Symphony; Utah Youth Symphony; Viewmont High School Symphony Orchestra, Southwest Symphony Orchestra, for which she was a soloist in their annual Salute to Youth; and the Dixie State Symphony Orchestra. Wall has also performed in many string chamber ensembles in the DSC String Chamber Program. Last summer she was a violinist in the Symphony Orchestra Academy of the Pacific in Powell River, Canada.
