Kathie Stewart, called “stellar” by the Cleveland Plain Dealer, is principal and solo flutist with Apollo’s Fire: the Cleveland Baroque Orchestra and appears on 15 recordings with the ensemble. A faculty member of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, she serves as teacher of baroque flute and curator of harpsichords in the Historical Performance department. In addition to performing throughout North America on traverso and recorder with Apollo’s Fire, she has also appeared with the Cleveland Orchestra, Cleveland Opera, ARTEK, the Oberlin Baroque Ensemble, Tafelmusik, The Washington Bach Sinfonia, Cleveland Pops Orchestra, and Les Délices. Stewart has performed at the Aspen and Ojai Music Festivals, the Boston Early Music Festival, the New World Symphony’s Baroque Festival in Miami, Oberlin College Artist Recital Series, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Library of Congress and Dumbarton Oaks series in Washington, D.C. In addition, she has performed to sold-out crowds with Apollo’s Fire in Cleveland’s Severance Hall. At Oberlin, Stewart teaches baroque flute, introduces novices to the instrument, and specializes in helping modern flute players make the transition to the baroque flute. She educates players of modern instruments in baroque performance style, coaches baroque ensembles on period instruments, and teaches harpsichord tuning. A proponent of historical temperaments, she tunes and maintains the conservatory’s world-class collection of historical harpsichord reproductions.
