Praised for his “standout” performances and “elegant solos” (The Gazette, Colorado Springs), Evan Pengra Sult has been the principal flutist of the Pacific Northwest Ballet Orchestra since 2019 and will join the members of Northwest Sinfonietta starting in the 2024-25 Season. He holds degrees from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (M.M. ’19) and the Eastman School of Music (B.M./P.C. ’17); his principal teachers are Tim Day, Bonita Boyd, Anne Harrow, Zart Dombourian-Eby, and Bonnie Blanchard. He has been a fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center, Colorado College Music Festival, National Orchestral Institute, and Texas Music Festival, among others.

Evan performs regularly with a panoply of Pacific Northwest ensembles, including the Seattle Symphony, Seattle Opera, Seattle Metropolitan Chamber Orchestra, and the Auburn and Lake Washington Symphony Orchestras. He was an associate member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago and currently plays as the flutist of the Agermos Chamber Music Project. As a pedagogue, he has recently been engaged for masterclasses at the University of Oregon, University of Washington, and Seattle Flute Society; he is a teaching artist with the Seattle Collaborative Orchestra. Evan has been a featured guest on 98.1 Classical KING FM’s popular program “Northwest Focus Live!” and has performed live on television in Houston, TX. He currently serves on the board of the Seattle Flute Society.

Also a writer, Evan is an obituarist and critic (and member of the Editorial Board) for The Flutist Quarterly and was a fellow at the 2018 Rubin Institute for Music Criticism. In his admittedly limited spare time, he is an omnivorous reader, crossword puzzler, and politics junkie.
