Praised by the New York Times for the “limpid sweetness” of his baroque flute playing, David Ross performs as baroque flute soloist with the Sebastians, with New York’s oldest Bach cantata series Bach Vespers at Holy Trinity, as principal flutist with Mercury, and as piccolo player with Teatro Nuovo. He also performs with ensembles including the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Trinity Wall Street Baroque Orchestra, New York Baroque Incorporated, Early Music New York, Washington Bach Consort, REBEL, Bach Society of Minnesota, and the Lyra Baroque Orchestra.

David earned historical performance degrees from both the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Holland and the Juilliard School in NYC. Since 2009 his training and career have been focused exclusively on historical performance ranging from one-keyed baroque flutes to many-keyed flutes and piccolos of the romantic era. Prior to his specialization in early music David studied modern flute at the Cleveland Institute of Music. He teaches privately from his home in NYC.
