One of the Boston area’s most versatile musicians, Katherine Matasy has been described by The Boston Globe as “a musician of depth and refinement” with “technique to burn” and her playing praised as “riveting,” “ravishing,” “brilliant” and “a rare feat.”
As clarinetist and bass clarinetist in chamber music and orchestra settings, "doubler" in musical theater (flute and saxophone), and classical accordionist, she has performed with most of the region’s major musical organizations, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Boston Pops, Boston Symphony Chamber Players, Handel and Haydn Society, Emmanuel Music, Boston Modern Orchestra Project, Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra, Huntington Theater, and American Repertory Theater, among others.
Highly regarded as an interpreter of new music, she is a founding member of Dinosaur Annex and a frequent performer with Boston’s many new music groups.
