Alex Ishov – flute


Equally at home on stage, baking a sourdough loaf, or skiing through the forest, Alex Ishov finds inspiration for his work from a wide range of life experiences. As a flutist and sound artist, Alex balances his classical orchestral training with a love for constantly evolving modern music.

His playing has taken him to stages around the world, which include Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center, the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Alice Tully Hall and Carnegie Hall in New York City, and the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Raised by Russian parents, Alex spent his childhood between Philadelphia, PA, and St. Petersburg, Russia.

Before relocating to San Diego, Alex was active as a freelance performer, teacher, and translator in the New York City area. He is currently pursuing a graduate degree in Flute Performance and Contemporary Music at the University of California, San Diego, and holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music and Interlochen Arts Academy.
