Kaitlin Springer, Teaching Artist
Kaitlin Springer, an avid performer and teacher in the south Florida area, is very much looking forward to starting her new role as teaching artist with The Florida Orchestra. A native of Connecticut, Springer holds a bachelor’s degree in music performance from Boston University and a master’s degree in music performance from the Hartt School of Music. During her time in the northeast, she regularly performed as assistant principal violist of the Cape Cod Symphony and as section violist in the New Haven and Waterbury symphonies.
Since moving to Florida, Springer has held the position of artist-in-residence at the Conservatory School at North Palm Beach, working alongside Victor Fernandez, who was named teacher of the year in Palm Beach County in 2017. She also performs as principal violist with the Brevard Symphony and as section violist in the Southwest Florida Symphony and Orlando Philharmonic. Her love of chamber music led her to help create the Seacrest Quartet, which won the Quartet Fellowship at Wintergreen Summer Music Festival in 2017, where she performed with the Wintergreen Festival Orchestra and went on a recital tour with the quartet. Other festivals Springer attended include Aspen Summer Music Festival, where she was awarded a full scholarship, Garth Newell Emerging Artists Fellowship Program, and Bowdoin Music Festival.
