The Great Kat's Bio
The Great Kat was born Katherine Thomas in Swindon, England and began Classical piano studies at 7. At the age of 9, she began Classical violin studies in New York. She performed as a Prodigy Violin Soloist for Governor Oscar Flores Tapia in Coahuila, Mexico at the Centennial of General Vito Alessio Robles’s birth and at the famous Teatro Fernando Soler as a Prodigy Violin Soloist in Saltillo, Mexico. The Great Kat has toured as a guest violin soloist with the Orquesta Sinfonica de Coahuila in Mexico and in recitals under the auspices of Fondo para Actividades Sociales y Culturales del Estado, Bellas Artes, Banca Serfin and other organizations in Mexico. After touring the world, The Great Kat realized that Classical music was dead, so she began updating Classical Music with Speed Metal and transcribed intricate violin solos to the guitar.
