Kate Randall began her musical journey at the age of 5. After achieving a distinction for Grade 8 violin when she was 14, Kate went on to further her musical studies at Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester. Upon completion of her A-levels, Kate returned to her home city where she obtained her music degree from the University of Cape Town. While at university Kate won a number of awards including the annual Musikanti Chamber Award four times. She also won a bursary from the Cape Performing Arts Board through a competition process.

Kate has had a varied musical career working in orchestras, shows, bands, chamber ensembles and as a session violinist on rock, pop and jazz albums. A career highlight was meeting and performing for Nelson Mandela when he was president of South Africa.
