An active freelance flutist in the Los Angeles area, Dr. Julie Long has played with nearly every major local ensemble at every major local venue. Hailed a terrific flutist by Julius Baker and called the real deal by Jim Walker, Julie is most comfortable playing a variety of classical genres: from early music to contemporary, from solo to large ensemble.
As an orchestral flutist, Julie has performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Los Angeles Music Center Opera Orchestra, Pacific Symphony, Pasadena Symphony, Long Beach Symphony, Los Angeles Master Chorale Orchestra and others. She became a member of the Riverside County Philharmonic Orchestra after winning the second flute audition in the Fall of 2005. As a studio recording artist she has played on many motion picture soundtracks, such as "Fantastic Four", "Superman Returns" and "Horton Hears a Who". Julie is the former principal flutist of the American Youth Symphony and Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra, positions she held for several years.
