Katelyn Bouska

Author: Pavel Dulik

In the summer of 2015, Katelyn Bouska travelled to the Czech Republic intent on searching out the new generation of Czech composers.  There, she met Štepán Filípek, who introduced her to the works of Miloslav Ištvan and the world of musical Brno.  The inspiration grown from the sharing their musical cultures birthed the inspiration for their collaboration. Currently, Katelyn is on faculty at the Curtis Institute of Music and Temple University in Philadelphia and Štepán is a founding member of the Miloslav Ištvan Quartet and is a frequent collaborator with the broadcast company, ?eský Rozhlas Brno.
