Boston ties down a viola

One of the Boston Symphony’s regular viola players has won the audition for a vacant seat.

Kathryn Sievers, who was born in Boston and grew up in the Marshall Islands, has been playing in the orchestra since December 2007.

She has an Eng. Lit degree from Yale, a Masters from Juilliard and some post-grad qualification from Cincinnati.

It’s the Boston Symphony. Even the janitor’s got a degree.

  • I’m so pleased to hear this…Regular extra players very rarely get the full-time position and yet play with the orchestras week in , week out. I’m sure this is well-deserved.
