Feeling a bit camera shy



Katherine G. Burton, violinist, has a story to tell us. It is the story of Gospel Music and she tells it with determination, energy and talent holding it together with the strings of her violin. It is rare to hear an instrumental performance of Gospel Music on the violin, but innovation is nothing new to this performer and teacher. 

However, Katherine Burton is a rare individual. She has become not only an accomplished musician, educator and conductor, but also an aspiring solo, female, African American gospel violinist. 

The unique artistry of Burton is self-evident. She has been describe as one of Philadelphia's most admired musicians. She is not only a masterful gospel violinist, as her audiences will attest, but a conductor extraordinaire. Burton has conducted Philadelphia's New Dawn Orchestra and created many stimulating instrumental gospel arrangements. 

Katherine Burton is a multi-talented African American woman whose music spiritually electrifies and energizes audiences. Her talents have captured the attention of many renowned local and national gospel groups. She was the first violinist to be featured as a gospel performer with the Gospel Music Workshop of America, National Convention of Chorus and Choruses and the Edwin Hawkins Music and Arts Seminar.

Burton's talents have also been showcased with the Sequence Choir of Queens New York where they performed in London, England. "Realizing the need to communicate the African American gospel experience with an audience hat did not have access to gospel music was enlightening and pleasing for us as well as the Europeans," said Burton. 

After her graduation from high school, she continued her musical education at Temple University, College of Music where she received a B.A. in Music Education with a concentration on violin. She has also earned a M.A. in Education from Arcadia University and completed graduate work at West Chester and Villanova Universities.

"Growing up in the African American church has enabled me to shift from classical music and to translate the violin into soul stirring and upbeat African American gospel music. I am grateful God has given me an instrument that speaks for me," said Burton.

Katherine Burton is blessed with boundless energy and determination in bringing a contemporary and uplifting message in her music.
