Kate Whitley




Kate Whitley (b. 1989) is composer, pianist, and producer who is a 2014 Borletti Buitoni Trust Special Award Winner and received a 2013 Sky Academy Futures Fund Bursary for her work to widen access to classical music: “a generation tainted by nothing except enthusiasm, daring, virtuosity and idealism is blazing onto the scene. Kate Whitley is typical of this bold new breed” (The Times, 2011). She is the founder and Artistic Director, with conductor Christopher Stark, of The Multi-Story Orchestra, which began with a critically acclaimed performance of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring in a disused multi-storey Car Park in Peckham. It’s work has been widely acclaimed: “The response was ecstatic, and it deserved to be” (New York Times); ‘Forget fusty concert halls, the future of music is emerging in a municipal Car Park’ (The Times, 2011); ‘Anyone who doubts the value of music education should get down to this concrete jungle and watch its effects in action’ (The Telegraph, 2014) She has been hailed as a ‘remarkable and innovative young musician of huge promise’ (Seen and Heard International, 2012), and her music described as ‘uniquely sensitive’ (Bachtrack, 2013), ‘powerfully moving’ (Edinburgh Fringe Review, 2011);, and “a remarkable feat.. with a genuine emotional gravity” (The Telegraph, 2015). She was 2013-4 Music Fellow at Rambert Dance Company, and 2015 New Music Programmer at Kettles Yard Art Gallery.
