Get to know Katie Konopka-Hughes
My name is Katie Konopka-Hughes. I was born in Atlanta, Georgia, but moved to Spartanburg when I was 9. I began playing Violin in 5th grade, but switched to Cello in 6th grade. Some of my music experience includes Region Orchestra all throughout Middle and High School, the Palmetto Youth Symphony, Carolina Youth Symphony, and participating in Orchestra throughout my College education. Since then, I have enjoyed playing in many churches and weddings in the area. I began my college career at Spartanburg Methodist College, majoring in Music Education, and continued to Converse College afterwards. I have tutored young musicians since 2011, and have greatly enjoyed watching them thrive and learn to love their instrument.
