Profile Leonard Lopatin studied flute performance with Harold Bennett at the Manhattan School of Music, with Arthur Lora at the Juilliard School. After Juilliard, in 1976, he was appointed as third flute and piccolo in the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, which position he held for three years. Because of his growing interest in flute making, he left the opera in 1979 to work for Brannen Brothers, Flutemakers. He is now 2nd flute in the Asheville Symphony, and the owner of the Lopatin Flute Company.
