In this episode of “On Deck” we’ll get to know 17-year old violist Karlie Roberts.
Karlie lives in Eugene, but she will be performing in Portland on May 4th – she’s one of the 8 winners of a spot in this year’s MetroArts Young Artist Debut concert. (This year’s concert will take place at Trinity Cathedral; Karlie will be performing Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante with violinist John Fawcett. All Classical Portland will be broadcasting that concert on May 12th.)
Winning a spot on that MetroArts concert is quite a feat… but last Fall, Karlie achieved something else pretty spectacular: at age 16, she won a spot in the viola section with the Eugene Symphony.
