Flute and Piano
Catherine Monczewski graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education from Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina. During her undergraduate studies she was able to assist with the Bob Jones Academy Symphony Orchestra, lead Sevier Middle School band and string programs, as well as teach elementary general music at Hollis Academy. During the summers of her undergraduate studies, she enjoyed teaching flute lessons to students in her community. During the summer of 2016, Catherine ran a flute clinic for middle school flutists called the Golden Flute Camp that finished with a recital filled with student chamber performances as well as a few performances of her own.
During her undergraduate studies, she was principal flutist for the University Symphony Orchestra and the University Symphonic Wind Band. In 2014, Catherine placed co-first chair in the South Carolina Collegiate Honor Band. In 2015 at the South Carolina Flute Society’s Spring Convention, Catherine won the opportunity to play in a masterclass with Paula Robison, and she also performed for the South Carolina Flute Society’s masterclass in 2016 for Jill Felber.
Ms. Monczewski’s mom was her first flute teacher and taught her not only the fundamentals of playing the flute but also inspired a love for music. She enjoys sharing her music with others in both casual and formal settings. In January of 2016, she and Krista Pack, a friend and fellow flutist at George Mason University, performed a recital to raise funds for a nonprofit organization called Amazima Ministries.
