SFCM’s exclusive horn department is made up of fewer than ten students under the close instruction of four faculty professors—members of the San Francisco Symphony, Opera, and Ballet orchestras. Horn students have opportunities to perform with resident ensembles such as the Conservatory Orchestra and chamber groups, with emphasis on both contemporary and classical music, and to enter a biennial brass concerto competition.
San Francisco Symphony members are even closer than you think.
SFCM changed global music education in 2020 by acquiring management company Opus3 Artists, home to over 250 top musicians. Masterclasses, recording sessions, and side-by-sides with members of the Opus 3 roster are only the beginning of our work together to invent the future of performances.
