My Name is Steph smith I am Originally from Park Ridge, Illinois, I relocated to Boston, Massachusetts in 2010 to attend the Boston Conservatory. In 2014 I graduated with a Bachelors of Music in french horn performance. While attending the Boston Conservatory I was trained to perform for all mediums and styles of performance art, including dance, combined chorus, musical theater, opera, wind ensemble, brass ensemble, chamber music, and orchestra. Most recently, I was a founding member of 4Play Horn Quartet which was awarded first place at the 48th International Horn Society Symposium’s horn quartet competition. My orchestral opportunities have taken me to locations that musicians only dream about. I have performed in Boston’s Symphony Hall, Chicago’s Symphony Center, New York’s Carnegie Hall, Rotterdam’s de Doelen, and Amsterdam’s Concertgebow. I studied under esteemed french horn pedagogues Eli Epstein, Melanie Cottle, and Dorothy Katz.
