Fleisher, who has been a member of the Naples Philharmonic since 1983, began studying the harp at the age of 10. After graduating from the University of Miami, Fleisher joined the Naples Philharmonic and the Miami City Ballet orchestra. Fleisher was the principal harpist with the Nagoya (Japan) Symphony and the Orchestra of the Mineria (Mexico). He is the son of pianist Leon Fleisher and nephew of Edward Druzinsky, former principal harpist with the Chicago Symphony.

Travis Jones is the instructor of Aural Skills and teaches Introduction to Music at the University of South Alabama and serves as the second flutist of the Mobile Symphony Orchestra. Jones has performed with orchestras both abroad and in the U.S., having played with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, Mariinsky Orchestra, Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra, Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra and Lansing Symphony Orchestra. In addition to orchestral performances, he is featured on the University of Michigan Symphony Band's recording, Reflections. Jones was selected as the only American participant in the 2014 Nicolet International Flute Competition and was a finalist for the 2014 Coeur D’Alene Symphony Orchestra National Young Artist Competition.
