Hailed as "remarkable" by the Chicago Tribune and "one to watch, in more ways than one" by Muso Magazine, Jessica Warren-Acosta has gained worldwide recognition as a dynamic performer and a flutist who thinks outside the box. Warren-Acosta has performed with numerous internationally acclaimed symphonies, including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. She also gave the American premiere of Pascal Dusapin's Flute Concerto, "Galim," at the Spoleto USA Festival.
