Alex Sopp on SoundBetter

I can help you achieve all the flute dreams you never even knew you had! I’ve collaborated, composed, toured, and recorded with Paul Simon, Ben Folds, Taylor Swift and more! I’m a founding member of acclaimed sextet yMusic

Alex Sopp is a musician and artist living in Brooklyn.

As the flutist of yMusic, The Knights, and NOW Ensemble, the New York Times has praised her playing as “exquisite” and “beautifully nuanced.” Comfortable in many genres, Alex has commissioned, premiered, toured, and recorded with some of the most exciting composers and songwriters of our time, including Paul Simon, Nico Muhly, Taylor Swift, Sufjan Stevens, Ben Folds, Jonsí of Sigur Ros, Philip Glass, Andrew Norman, Bruce Hornsby, Son Lux, Gabriel Kahane, St. Vincent, Anohni, Judd Greenstein, José González, My Brightest Diamond, The Dirty Projectors, and The National. A sought-after soloist, Alex made her Carnegie Hall debut with the New York Youth Symphony, and has appeared as a soloist with the New York Philharmonic under the direction of David Robertson. In addition to her three main musical families, she plays frequently as a guest with the International Comtemporary Ensemble (ICE), and has made regular appearances with the New York Philharmonic, Deutsche Kammerphilarmonie Bremen, the Mariinsky Orchestra, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and the Louisiana Philharmonic.
