Pan Harmonia, Asheville’s award-winning chamber music repertory company, opens its 19th season at the newly opened Carolina Music Museum in downtown Greenville on Heritage Green on Sunday, September the 9th, at 3:30 PM. Baroque and Beyond, features Pan Har- monia’s Artistic Director, flutist Kate Steinbeck, with Barbara Weiss, playing the harpsichord, and Gail Ann Schroeder, the viola da gam- ba.
Pan Harmonia has built a national reputation for its imaginative concept of bringing expert artists from across the country, playing a vari- ety of instruments, into their musical circle to produce some of the most arresting music from the baroque period right up to today’s mu- sic. It’s visionary and creative programming has garnered support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the North Carolina Arts Council.
Kate Steinbeck, Pan Harmonia’s dynamic Artistic Director, discovered the flute in the 7th grade and the rest is history. She attended the Baldwin Wallace College’s Conservatory, routinely listed as one of the country’s leading music programs, where she earned a life-long mentor, William Hebert, then at the pinnacle of his 60-year career as master teacher and the Cleveland Orchestra’s piccolo player. She won a Fulbright, studied and performed in Belgium, Germany, and France. Kate has produced two critically acclaimed CDs: Light in the Corner (2004) with percussionist Byron Hedgepeth and Luminescence (2010) with guitarist Amy Brucksch
