Flute Instruction with Joseph Monticello

April 17, 2020

Flutist Joseph Monticello’s playing has been praised by both the New York Times and Wall Street Journal as “graceful" and for being as “exciting as the singers.” Equally at home on both modern and historical flutes, Monticello is the newly appointed principal flutist of Boston Baroque and second flutist of the Florida Grand Opera and Palm Beach Symphony orchestras, making his home in Miami. Monticello remains active in the historical performance world, performing with Philharmonia Baroque, Boston Baroque, New York Baroque Incorporated, and as the principal flute of the newly formed Teatro Nuovo festival orchestra, specializing in the historically informed presentation of Bel Canto operatic masterworks on period-appropriate instruments. Monticello is a graduate of The Juilliard School, Oberlin Conservatory, and Interlochen Arts Academy.
