Kathy Mullen started playing the violin at age 12 in the Fauquier County Public School system. She was introduced to classical music through her parents. It was through listening to albums her parents played that Kathy developed her true love for violin.
After graduating from Fauquier High School, Kathy attended Shenandoah University where she began pursuing a degree in Music Education. Kathy played with various orchestras and churches and performed at weddings and many other events throughout the years.
From 1994 to 2002 Kathy played first and second violin with the Loudoun Symphony Orchestra of Leesburg, Virginia. Currently, she plays with the Piedmont Symphony Orchestra (PSO) as a co-principal second violinist. The PSO performs at the Highland Center for the Arts in Warrenton, Virginia.
In addition, Kathy plays for Oak Shade Baptist Church of Catlett, Virginia and Reid Temple AME Church in Glenn Dale, Virginia. Kathy’s one of a kind smile, and her easy going personality have made her an instant favorite among students of all ages here at Drum & Strum.
