Described as "engaging...stimulating...piquant...delightful" by the New York Times, Pamela Sklar has performed internationally and played with/for many well-known artists live and on recordings. In Westchester and elsewhere, she collaborates as a flutist and composer with groups playing a multitude of musical styles.
A winner of ArtsWestchester's Arts Initiative Award (2020), Pamela will be presenting her original performance project later this year.
With classical ensembles she presents colorful programs; her bands Angels inthe Chamber and Intuition Quartet present fun and dynamic programs co-featuring originals, blues, prog-rock, pop, light jazz and bossa nova.
As a soloist, Pamela plays flute, alto flute, bass flute and Native American flute in creative programs which include improvisation.
Recently, Pamela's musical works were co-featured in Cuba (2019) as well as in Madrid (2017, 2018). As both a flutist and composer, Pamela is praised as "hauntingly beautiful, full of colors...excellent...mastery" (the Flutist Quarterly). Her two critically acclaimed original CD's, ANative American-Jazz Tribute, and Silver Pharaoh can be heard here (as excerpts; 'click to listen'):
Most recently she released three new recordings: New York Tapestries with her duo 2Flutes,Angels in the Chamber, and Rendezvous with Intuition Quartet.
