As a performer on the modern flute, Mr. Pellerite is well known as an orchestral musician. He succeeded his renowned teacher, William Kincaid, as solo flutist of the Philadelphia Orchestra. He has held the position of principal flute also with the symphony orchestras of Detroit and Indianpolis and performed with orchestras of Chautauqua (NY), Radio City Music Hall (NYC), L'Orquestra Sinfonica de Puerto Rico, as well, the San Francisco Symphony, Dallas Symphony and the Minnesota Orchestra. His performances have included those under such eminent conductors as Leonard Bernstein, Pablo Casals, Neville Mariner, Dimitri Mitropoulos, Eugene Ormandy, Leopold Stokowski and Igor Stravinsky.
For many years he served as Professor of Flute at Indiana University, and many of his students now hold prominent university and symphony positions. During much of his career as a classical flutist and artist teacher he has appeared throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico and abroad. Numerous residencies have included tours to Australia, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore and People's Republic of China. For a return invitation by the National Youth Orchestra of Hong Kong he offered classes and woodwind seminars.
"Some classical flutists have been drawn to the Native American Plains Flute, recognizing it as a distinctive musical instrument. Prominent in this group is James Pellerite, a distinguished flutist who has developed a classic repertoire for the NAPF which he performs with consummate skill, demonstrating a greatly expanded musical dimension to this simple instrument."
