Flute & Piccolo
Camille Watts has been flutist and solo piccoloist of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra since 1990, positions she held previously with the Atlanta and Denver Symphony Orchestras.
In Toronto, Camille has performed as piccolo soloist with the TSO, and has also performed with the Canadian Opera Company, Soulpepper Theatre, Music Niagara, and in many collaborations with HearHere Productions. Of a chamber music performance with the Associates of the TSO, The Toronto Star wrote, “The star player of the evening was Watts. Her technique, breath control and gorgeously shaped phrases made the music glow.” She has performed on many pop and classical recordings, as well as on film and TV soundtracks.
Camille is Adjunct Professor at the University of Toronto Faculty of Music, where she teaches flute and piccolo, coaches chamber music, and leads seminars in the graduate program. She has also served as flute and piccolo faculty at the National Youth Orchestra of Canada. As a massage therapist working with musicians, she joined a group of Toronto artists in creating the Artists’ Health Centre at Toronto Western Hospital, and served on the Foundation Board of Directors.
Camille lives near Trinity Bellwoods Park with her husband, Jeff Reynolds, who teaches at the University of Toronto Faculty of Music. In her spare time, she enjoys travel, long hikes, books and art.
