Robertson, former Music Director of the Orchestre National de Lyon, began his inaugural season with the St. Louis Symphony in September 2005. Principal Flute of the St. Louis Symphony since 2000, Mark Sparks has firmly established himself as a leading American orchestral flutist and teacher and is acclaimed for his colorful tone and spirited phrasing.
