Katia Osorio is a Honduran-American bassoonist from Houston, TX. Passionate about advocacy and minority representation within classical music, she uses her platform as a musician as an opportunity to challenge and broaden the standards that systemically exclude marginalized artists through performance, concert curation and other creative projects.

In 2018, Katia organized and directed UT Austin’s first ever Hispanic Heritage Month Concert, an event showcasing student performances of repertoire written exclusively by Hispanic/Latinx composers. She is also the Co-Founder and Managing Director of Exposure—a digital database that focuses on filling the void of available resources for works by minority composers. Katia is a recipient of the 2018-19 Richard E. Rainwater Innovation Grant, and has presented at multiple panels and podcasts, including the Meg Quigley Vivaldi Competition, New Music Gathering, and “Classically Untrained” podcast.

Katia holds a Bachelor of Music in Performance from The University of Texas at Austin where she studied with Kristin Wolfe Jensen, and is currently pursuing a Master of Music in Performance at Yale University under the tutelage of Frank Morelli.
