Flutist Kate Steinbeck is recognized across the US and abroad as a unique interpreter of wide-ranging repertoire, an innovative music producer, and an enthusiastic teacher and coach.
Kate began playing flute in a public-school music program
in Western North Carolina, where she spent much of
her childhood. Many adventures led her far and wide
but ultimately brought her to Asheville in 1997 to
raise a family, create Pan Harmonia and teach.
