These intimate concerts are programmed to offer both new and traditional works that will delight audiences of all musical tastes.

Praised by the Philadelphia Inquirer as a “spectacular” and “graceful” musician, Katy Ambrose has made a name for herself as an educator, chamber and orchestral musician. She joined the faculty of the University of Virginia as Lecturer in Horn and Principal Horn of the Charlottesville Symphony in the Fall of 2015, and also holds the position of Fourth Horn of the Delaware Symphony Orchestra. Previously, Katy was a founding member and horn player in Seraph Brass, Second Horn in the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic, Fourth Horn in the Philly Pops!, Acting Assistant Principal/Utility horn in the Albany Symphony, and Assistant Principal horn in the Lexington Philharmonic (Lexington, KY). She has performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Opera Company of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Ballet, Hawai’i Opera Theater/Hawai’i Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Music Honolulu, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Harrisburg Symphony, Vermont Symphony, New Haven Symphony, and regionally with Opera on the James, Ash Lawn Opera, and the Staunton Music Festival. Outside of the classical setting, Katy played in the band for several shows on Adele’s 2016 world tour, Cee Lo Green’s Grammy-winning album, The Lady Killers, and has been heard during the Super Bowl and Monday Night Football as a recording artist for NFL Studios.
