Gross is Professor of Horn and Director of the Wind, Brass, and Percussion Program at the University of California–Santa Barbara. Dr. Gross is also a former member of the Atlanta Symphony, National Symphony, Santa Fe Opera Orchestra, and the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra. His international solo appearances include the Orchester der Stadt Vöcklabruck in Austria, Moscow Conservatory, L’Abri International Arts Festival in Switzerland, Nairobi Symphony in Kenya, NTUA Wind Ensemble in Taiwan, and the Camerata Filarmonia Bohemia of Prague.
His Carnegie Hall debut was described by the New York Concert Review as, “offering some of the cleanest articulation and purest musicality.” Dr. Gross has released four solo CDs with orchestra on the Summit label. Gramophone Magazine praised his playing for its “subtle flair and vibrant character,” as well as its “suave and poetic conversation.” Reviews from the American Record Guide describe his playing as “outstanding, striking the right balance between thoughtfulness and verve, planning and spontaneity…an excellent tone and the ability and temperament to play heroically.” Horn Call magazine states that the “soloist plays technically flawlessly and highly expressively throughout…Highly recommended.”
