Results from LA Phil’s recent 2nd Horn audition
June 8, 2012 2 Comments
No official announcement from the Los Angeles Philharmonic, but it looks like their recent Second Horn audition was won by Gregory Roosa.
Mr. Roosa is currently horn player with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. He joined that orchestra in 2003 after having held similar positions with the Kennedy Center Opera Orchestra and the Colorado Symphony. He’s also played with a number of other orchestras including the Chicago Symphony and Detroit Symphony, among others.
He has played in the orchestra of the Colorado Music Festival since 1999. It’s worth noting that Andrew Bain, who joined the LA Phil as Principal Horn this past September, has been Principal Horn of the festival since 2003, so the two musicians are familiar with each other’s playing.
