Pan Harmonia transcends the boundaries of traditional chamber music through eclectic, unpretentious and genre-smashing performances. We love sharing great music with audiences of all ages. Now in its 14th season, Pan Harmonia, directed by flutist Kate Steinbeck, has been nationally recognized for its unique work and superb artistry. Pan Harmonia is an independent artist collective based in Asheville, NC.
