Stephanie Childress was twice a finalist in the strings section of the BBC Young Musician of the Year, in 2016 and 2018.
She has also been concertmaster of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.

Today, she signed on as a conductor with Linda Marks at HarrisonParrott.
It’s easier to sell a young conductor at the moment than a young violinist.
