Australian flutist Catherine Gregory enjoys a diverse career as a soloist, chamber musician, orchestral player and teaching artist. The New York Times has called her playing “magically mysterious,” also writing that “Ms. Gregory left a deep impression… her sound rich and fully present.” She has performed at The Kennedy Center, Alice Tully Hall, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Barbican Centre in London and at the Lincoln Center Festival, and this Fall marked her recital debut at Carnegie Hall. Winner of the 2018 Pro Musicis International Award, Gregory has appeared at the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts in Chicago and the National Gallery of Australia. She has served as guest Principal Flute of numerous orchestras, including Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, the American Symphony Orchestra, and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra. Catherine's repertoire spans from the Baroque to the present day. She has performed for numerous distinguished series and festivals, such as Caramoor and the Chamber Music Societies of Lincoln Center and Philadelphia, and with Southern Cross Soloists. She has been heard live on ABC Classic FM (Australia), WFMT Chicago, WQED Pittsburgh, and KUSC Los Angeles. Catherine currently serves as Co-Artistic director of Decoda—Affiliate Ensemble of Carnegie Hall and Resident Ensemble for Creative Performance at the Guildhall School in London. She is an alumna of Ensemble Connect: A Program of Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School and The Weill Music Institute in Partnership with The New York City Department of Education. Catherine will serve as guest lecturer in flute at Lawrence University in Wisconsin for the winter of 2020. Passionate about connecting all communities through music, Catherine has developed a special project called Just Breathe, providing interactive performances for cancer patients to provoke, stimulate and harness their creative expression throughout their treatment journey. In her native Australia, Catherine studied with Gerhard Mallon at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University, from which she earned her Master’s degree and the University Medal. Her awards include a Brisbane City Council Emerging Artist’s Fellowship, and an American Australian Association’s Dame Joan Sutherland Fund grant.
