Thank you to Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra hornists and ESM alumni Joseph Rounds, Zachary Smith, and Mark Houghton for braving a snowy trek up to Rochester to present a masterclass to the Eastman School of Music Horn Studio on February 2. We all enjoyed learning from you, hearing you perform, and learning about your careers and time at Eastman!
