“I want to live in the whole world of music.” – Henry Cowell
“Kate lives life and her art fully, loudly and withholding nothing – which is one of the great joys of working with her.” — Nello McDaniel, Arts Action Research, Brooklyn, NY
“Kate Steinbeck’s flute playing was spell-binding — no one knows better than she how to hang notes and silence in the air.” — Laura McDowell, Classical Voice of NC
“I will remark, as I have in the past, that while the brilliant tone of gold-alloy flutes works in orchestras, the Abell flute that Kate Steinbeck plays, made of grenadilla wood, has a superior tone for chamber music. This modern wood flute blends with other woodwinds in a way that cannot be equaled. It is part of the allure of hearing a concert from Pan Harmonia.” — Ted McIrvine, Classical Voice of NC
“The creative adult is the child who has survived.” – Ursula K. Le Guin
