About the Musicians:
Anatolia Evarkiou-Kaku is a varied, classically-trained flutist who performs and teaches throughout Chicago and supports groups that strive to amplify conventionally underrepresented voices through performance and pedagogy.

She coaches flutists of all levels and maintains a small private studio. Anatolia’s current chamber project is the commission, performance, and recording of “the girl who cried pain”, a theme and variations for flute, violin, and vibraphone by Ruby Fulton. The project will culminate in an upcoming music video filmed in Chicago communities and featuring local women and musicians in 2022. Anatolia completed a Bachelor of Arts at Pomona College where she studied Music and Economics and was awarded the William F. Russell and William G. Blanchard Prizes.
