Catherine Gregory
Lecturer - Music, Music Industry (Artistic Citizenship and Community Engagement), Director of the Gluck Fellowship Program

Australian flutist Catherine Gregory, winner of the Pro Musicis International Award, enjoys a dynamic career as a soloist, ensemble player, and teaching artist. Her performances of music old and new have taken her across the globe from Alice Tully Hall in New York, to London’s Milton Court, Hamburg’s new Elbphilharmonie, and the Sydney Opera House.

Catherine, who first came to the United States as a Fulbright Scholar, is a sought-after recitalist and chamber musician, with performances at Carnegie Hall, with the Chamber Music Societies of Lincoln Center and Philadelphia, Camerata Pacifica, Caramoor, Bay Chamber Festival, Við Djúpið Festival in Iceland and the Southern Cross Soloists. She has toured internationally with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, and has played numerous cycles as guest principal flute with the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra.  Catherine is a Core-Artist of Decoda, the affiliate ensemble of Carnegie Hall, serving as Co-Artistic Director of the group from 2017-2020.

Catherine is deeply passionate about the power of music to forge direct and impactful connections with all communities. Catherine’s current project, Just Breathe, embodies her creative spirit as a commissioner of new music and artist citizen: it is both a performance of new commissions from leading composers such as Clarice Assad, Viet Cuong, Timo Andres and Juhi Bansal, as well as a series of interactive performance workshops for cancer patients, providers and caregivers that explore the intersection of breath and music.

Committed to nurturing the next generation of young artists, Catherine has established herself as an accomplished pedagogue, having served as visiting Flute Lecturer at Lawrence University in Wisconsin, and as the flute faculty member for the Decoda Chamber Music Festival and the Emerging Composers Intensive.

Catherine is a faculty member of The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music as a Lecturer in Music, Music Industry (Artistic Citizenship and Community Engagement), and is also the newly appointed Director of the Gluck Fellowship Program, leading the UCLA Gluck Fellows in their Music Ensembles to engage, connect and share live chamber music performances at non-traditional venues all around the city of Los Angeles. Catherine also serves on the faculty of The Colburn School and has given masterclasses and led residencies at leading music schools internationally, from The Tianjin Juilliard School, to Curtis, to the Guildhall School in London. Catherine’s recent album together with pianist David Kaplan, entitled Vent, was released on the Bright Shiny Things label in September 2023.
