Steven Flores is currently a master’s student in euphonium performance at the University of Central Arkansas. As a student worker and graduate assistant for the past 2 1/2 years, Steven has spent an enormous amount of time serving in the music office and covering many of the same responsibilities this position will entail. He will continue to oversee student worker scheduling, recital logistics, and all recital programs. He will also assume responsibility for equipment inventory, building maintenance, and all purchasing, travel, and budget matters as the recently appointed Fiscal Administrative Assistant in the Department of Music. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at the Florida State University with a Certificate in Performance as a student of Professor Paul Ebbers and will complete his Master of Music in Performance degree in May of 2018.


Before transferring to Florida State University, Steven attended Florida State College in Jacksonville, Florida where he received fundamental training in music theory and ear-training, as well as performance opportunities as a soloist with the band and their 2013 Concerto Competition winner. He was also a member of their Jazz Ensemble I program on the trombone. There, Steven received valuable training from Dr. Paul Weikle, a professor he highly admires and respects. Most his perspective in music is attributed to the personal care from his professor.


Aside from crafting his artistry on euphonium, Steven also plays sousaphone in the UCA Dixieland Band, trombone in the University of Central Arkansas BearBones ensemble, sings tenor in the University Chorus ensemble, substitutes on baritone for the Natural State Brass Band, and recently began studying tuba. Steven is the winner of the 2016 Spotlight Competition, where he is the featured soloist with the University of Central Arkansas’s Wind Ensemble, performing Harlequin by Philip Sparke. In the spring of 2017, he was chosen to receive the Chair’s Award for the Music department and he was named one of three outstanding students in the College of Fine Arts and Communication.


Steven served as a camp counselor and sectional teacher of the junior camp at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in the summer of 2017. There, he taught students ranging from fifth to ninth grade fundamental practices and approaches to the euphonium. He was fortunate to perform as principle euphonium in the Blue Lake staff band and tuba-euphonium quartet while playing with faculty members in the Festival band and Falcone band.
