Hailing from Canada’s Capital region, Loop pedal violist, composer, and arranger Kathryn Patricia Cobbler has crafted a singular niche in improvisation and classical performance. She obsesses over creating uniquely arresting soundscapes, whether in solo recitals, composing for theatre, performing in site specific art installations, and more. Recognized as an in-demand artist, she has been featured in the Ottawa region’s most notable Concert Series, including Music & Beyond, Shenkman Arts Centre, Music At Southminster, and Ottawa New Music Creators' Analogue Series to name a few.  

As a seasoned workshop facilitator and educator, Kathryn is proud to be a teaching artist for the El Sistema-inspired program OrKidstra and on the MASC Artist roster.  She has also been known to collaborate with other composers, and artists of multiple disciplines, premiering pieces by Canadian composers Mika Posen, and Raphael Weinroth-Browne. Most recently Kathryn Patricia was artist -in- residence with the Ottawa Dance Directive composing and collaborating for the premiere of Dream & True North envisioned and choreographed by Elizabeth Emond-Stevenson.  

After switching to music as her artistic path from visual arts, she would receive degrees in viola performance from Western University (B.M.) and the University of Ottawa (M.M.). A native of Windsor, Ontario, she makes her home in Ottawa. She performs on a viola by luthier, Sibylle Ruppert and a Boss RC-30 loop pedal.  https://www.kathrynpatricia.com/
