Saxophonist Joseph Lulloff is one of today’s most sought-after performers and clinicians. Acclaimed internationally for his innovative style and unparalleled virtuosity, Mr. Lulloff has been described by Branford Marsalis as “a marvelous musician” whose “knowledge of music, along with his ability to embrace music normally considered outside the sphere, makes him a joy to listen to.” Mr. Lulloff performs regularly with symphony orchestras throughout the United States and as soloist in many of the most prestigious concert venues in the Americas, Europe, Southeast Asia and Japan.
Joseph Lulloff received both Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees from Michigan State University. He has taught at the University of Illinois and is currently Distinguished Professor of Saxophone Performance Studies at Michigan State University.
Joseph Lulloff is a member of the summer artist faculty at the Brevard Music Center in Brevard, N.C., and is past president of the North American Saxophone Alliance. Mr. Lulloff’s honors include a Pro Musicis International Music Award, and both the Teacher/Scholar Award and the Distinguished Faculty Award from Michigan State University. As winner of the annual Concert Artists Guild International Music Competition, he has presented solo recitals at New York’s Weill Recital Hall and major concert halls in Washington, DC (Smithsonian Institute), Boston (Jordan Hall), and Los Angeles. New York Times critic Alan Hughes commented, “Mr. Lulloff’s artistry showed fine instincts for phrasing in both brilliant and pensive music.”
