On Deck with Catherine Hartrim-Lowe
Raúl Gómez-Rojas chats with 16-year-old Catherine Hartrim-Lowe, a self-described “homeschooled, homesteading, high school sophomore, cellist, vocalist, and amateur pianist living near Vancouver, Washington.”
Catherine was first introduced to music through piano lessons at the age of five, falling in love with the mellow, singing quality of the cello around her tenth birthday. She currently sings with Pacific Youth Choir and plays cello with Metropolitan Youth Symphony, and loves how both organizations offer a sense of community and fellowship through music.
When she’s not playing music, Catherine enjoys spending time at her family farm, that now includes four alpacas (her favorite as she can spin their fiber into yarn), two dairy cows, over thirty dairy goats, and an innumerable amount of chickens.
