Arts, Music & Writing

**PAN HARMONIA World-Class Chamber Music • Authentic • Local

Now in its 20th season, Pan Harmonia offers a mosaic of concerts, community outreach and educational residencies and enjoys taking its music out of the concert hall and into spaces all around the community — from art galleries and historic churches to prisons and homeless shelters. Its musicians believe in social justice through arts access and enjoy bringing high-quality performances to audiences of all ages and socioeconomic strata. Directed by flutist Kate Steinbeck, Asheville, NC’s award-winning chamber music repertory company has been nationally recognized for its artistic excellence and creative vision.
