Karin Walsh was born in Vancouver, where she studied with Beth Orson from the VSO. She played in the Vancouver Youth Symphony Orchestra and the Vancouver Academy of Music Orchestra for many years, and was fortunate to tour Japan and Hong Kong with the National Youth Orchestra of Canada.
Karin is a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where she received her Bachelor of Music. During that time, she studied with John Ferrillo and Keisuke Wakao, both respected oboists in the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Karin is happy and grateful to be back home in Vancouver, and looks forward to continuing her musical growth as a member of the VSO and the CBC Radio Orchestra.
