Cynthia Ellis is the solo piccolo player for the Pacific Symphony Orchestra and also served as Principal Flute for the Opera Pacific Orchestra from 1995 until the company closed in 2009.
She is a member of the Pedagogy Committee for the National Flute Association and has taught on the music faculty at the Claremont Graduate School, Pomona College, Biola College, and CSU Fullerton. She currently teaches applied music at Saddleback College and Hope International University and serves as music director for Laguna Flutes.
Piccolo is a specialty for Cindy: she writes the "Let's Talk Picc' column for Flute Talk Magazine and served as an artist in residence at the International Piccolo Symposium in July, 2013, held at the University of Nebraska, Omaha.
Cynthia has recorded for television, motion picture and cartoon soundtracks as well as commercially released chamber music recordings. 'Beyond Beethoven", with the award winning Les Amis Musicalles trio, was released on the Centaur label, and Jeremy Beck’s Flute Sonata is recorded on the CD 'Never Final, Never Gone", on the Nova label. This sonata is also dedicated to her.
Cynthia shares her home with Pacific Symphony trumpet player Tony Ellis and their three Labrador retrievers.

An active orchestral musician, she has performed with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, LA Opera, Opera Pacific, Singapore Symphony, Pasadena Symphony, and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. Her many ballet orchestra credits include the American Ballet Theater, Joffrey Ballet, Royal Ballet of London, and the Bolshoi Ballet.
Michelle has shared the stage with some of opera’s brightest stars, including Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, Deborah Voigt, Frederica von Stade, Denyce Graves, Kiri Te Kanawa, and Renee Fleming.
In 2005, Michelle and flutist Cynthia Ellis formed the duo Arioso out of a shared passion to explore the vibrant and colorful repertory for flute and harp, and they have performed innovative recitals and education concerts throughout Orange County. Their first CD Petite Delights was released on the Centaur label in 2016 and received immediate airplay on Classical KUSC.
Michelle holds a Bachelor of Music degree from Indiana University and a Master of Music degree from the University of Southern California.
