Katy Henriksen

KUAF host of "Of Note", Arts Director and contributor of "Ozarks at Large"

Katy Henriksen is a Fayetteville native who grew up in a musical household. She began violin lessons at age six and later added voice, viola and piano to her musical studies. She was briefly a music major at the University of Arkansas before switching over to print journalism (B.A. '00, M.A. '03) and she's been covering arts and culture ever since, both here in Northwest Arkansas and in New York City, where she lived from 2004 to 2008. 

She's covered arts and culture for the Brooklyn Rail, New Pages, Oxford American, Paste, the Poetry Project Newsletter, Publishers Weekly, Venus Zine, Wondering Sound and others. You may have seen her documentary Rare Edition, about the Dickson Street Bookshop, on AETN. Her favorite violin concerto is Mendelssohn's Concerto in E minor. In addition to joining KUAF as the classical music and arts producer, she's the music editor for The Rumpus, an online cultural magazine based in San Francisco.
