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 will make her recital debut at Carnegie Hall this fall. 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 Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, American Symphony Orchestra, and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra.
A sought-after chamber musician, she has performed for numerous distinguished series, such as the The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, the Caramoor music festival and 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. Passionate about connecting all communities through music, her upcoming project, Just Breathe provides interactive performances for cancer patients to provoke, stimulate and harness their creative expression throughout their treatment journey.
The recipient of numerous awards, Catherine has been a Fulbright Scholar, a Brisbane City Council Emerging Artist’s Fellow, and an American Australian Association’s Dame Joan Sutherland Fund grantee.
