One of Sequim's youngest virtuoso violinists Kate Powers, 14, takes center stage at the latest Music Live with Lunch. Playing since 2010, Powers plays at noon Tuesday, April 15, in St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 525 N. Fifth Ave.

She began in the Washington Old Time Fiddlers in a scholarship program with violin lessons from Mary Moon. Through that, Powers said she grew to love fiddling.

“I was able to hear the music in my head and I was able to allow it to come out of my fingers,” she said.

Her upcoming performance includes several numbers including “Blackberry Festival Footrace” by David Fisher, “Josefin's Waltz” by Roger Tallroth and “Hot Club D'ecosse” by Alasdair Fraser.

Powers is a member of the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra, Washington Old Time Fiddlers Association, a local youth band called the Young Fiddlers and she's been taking classical lessons in the Seattle area.

Her goal is to be one of the best violinists in the world.

Music Live with Lunch was founded 23 years ago by Lou and Bill Yandell as an outreach program to the community by St. Luke's.

Concerts continue the third Tuesday of each month with a hot lunch in the parish hall at 12:30 p.m.

Advance tickets are available at the church office 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Monday-Thursday or at the door. Call the office at 683-4862.
