DAVID ROSS

DAVID ROSS

 

Praised by The New York Times for the “limpid sweetness” of his baroque flute playing, David Ross is one of the leading professional historical flutists in North America. He is the principal flutist with the period instrument orchestra Mercury in Houston, TX, and performs with ensembles including Tafelmusik, the Clarion Society, Early Music New York, Rebel, and Lyra. Last summer David was featured in Minneapolis on Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 2, performed two Fringe Concerts at the Berkeley Early Music Festival, and attended the Berwick Academy at the Oregon Bach Festival. He teaches privately from his home in Inwood, NYC, offering supplemental lessons to flute majors at NYU and the Mannes School of Music. David began his training as a modern flutist at the Cleveland Institute of Music and went on to earn historical performance degrees from the Royal Conservatory of The Hague and the Juilliard School. He remains dedicated to exploring and expanding the possibilities of historical flutes, prioritizing creativity and spontaneity in his approach to making music.
