Let's make music together.

Pit Orchestra

I spend as much time as possible playing music. Although my primary instrument is the french horn, there is a lot more work for a decent piano player who can both read well and play musically.

A lot of my work comes from pit orchestras, and I've played a wide spectrum of styles, from opera to rock opera. Some of my favorite shows that I've played are West Side Story (horn), Guys and Dolls (horn), Beauty and the Beast (horn), Company (piano/conductor), Spelling Bee (piano) and Into the Woods (MD/piano/conductor). A more complete listing can be found below.

If you are in need of a Horn or a Piano player (for auditions, rehearsals and/or performances), please contact me!
