“We will deepen the connection between music and mental health through a residency that offers musical performances and group exercises that inspire the creative process, fostering a safe space for openness and expression.” This ambitious statement reflects the mission of my string quartet as we aspire to design a residency program within a hospital setting this spring.
About Kate Outterbridge
Kate Outterbridge is a violinist, teacher, and community-builder based in Providence, RI. She is currently finishing a two-year fellowship at Community MusicWorks, a non-profit organization that explores what it means to be a citizen musician. This winter, she was awarded her first grant from Rhode Island State Council of the Arts to create a concert experience featuring the music of Morton Feldman, which will be preceded by a mindfulness workshop to help the audience better engage with the music. Once her fellowship in Providence is completed this spring, Kate aims to focus her energies on developing classical music in urban communities as a means of community empowerment.
