Kanikapila Flute Company

Creating bridges across borders with the unique language of music

Mission Statement

Kanikapila Flute Company (founding members Teresa Iwashita, Mika Shamoto-Hill and Daniel Zane) was formed to promote opportunities for flute players interested in playing together in ensemble groups. Our purpose is also to promote music education across the schools and local communities and promote cultural exchanges between flute players internationally. We believe that creating bridges across borders with the unique language of music enriches and enhances life experiences that can change the world.


Kanikapila Flute Company is privileged and excited to present Ulla Suokko, acclaimed flutist, in October 2017.

Ulla earned the Master of Music degree from Sibelius Academy in Finland and a Performer’s Certificate from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York.  While living in Finland, she was a flutist in the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and spent many summers studying and performing in Italy.  Ulla received the Doctor of Musical Arts Degree from the Juilliard School in New York where she studied with Julius Baker.  Ulla made her official New York Debut in Carnegie Hall as the Winner of the International Auditions.
