On Deck with Kate Stange
Christa Wessel chats with 16-year old violinist Kate Stange, a junior at Roosevelt High School. As a youngster, she found her way to the violin after becoming obsessed, as a 4-year old, with a purple toy violin. Now a member of the Metropolitan Youth Symphony’s Concert Orchestra, music has become a huge priority in her life. In fact, when Kate was hospitalized for a heart-related issue last year, she found that being able to have her violin in her hospital room was a huge comfort to her.
