Kathryn Griesinger received her B.A. (cello) and M.M. (music education) degrees from the University of Akron in Ohio, where she later taught string pedagogy courses as adjunct faculty. She taught orchestra in Lake Local private and public schools for 13 years, while freelancing as an arranger and cellist for various orchestras and ensembles. Her symphonic composition, Legends of Glory, won a performance commission from the Women's Philharmonic Advocacy and was premiered in Oakland, California in 2015. A string orchestra adaptation has since been published by Wingert-Jones. Kathryn guest conducts and composes sight-reading music for district music festivals, as well as commissioned works. She also authored String Training, pedagogical theory and technique worksheets for beginning strings. Kathryn is currently the Orchestra Editor for J.W. Pepper and String Editor for Wingert-Jones Publications in Pennsylvania.
