Favorite Knights Moment: Playing on a busted outdoor ping pong table at a hipster bar in Austen. Picnic tables full of Knights and beers. Performing two gorgeous Mozart piano concertos hours earlier. Guillaume and Yaira’s impromptu cat walks.
Cellist Caitlin Sullivan is quite happy with her choice of instrument, in spite of the advice from strangers that it would be easier to carry a flute.

A recently named member of the Knights, Caitlin has enjoyed tours to Germany, Austen, TX, and the Ravinia Festival, as well as numerous performances in the New York area. Caitlin is also a member of the IRIS Orchestra in Memphis, TN, and will make her solo debut with the orchestra in the spring of 2014. Committed to community outreach and music education, Caitlin has participated in teaching and performing residencies as a member of Decoda, including her role as project leader for residencies in South Africa and Japan. Currently, Caitlin is on the Teaching Artist faculty with the New York Philharmonic, and frequently performs in school districts in the Adirondack Park with The Learning Arts. Caitlin is a graduate of Carnegie Hall’s Academy fellowship, the Juilliard School as a student of Timothy Eddy, and the Eastman School of Music as a student of Steven Doane.
