Kevin Haseltine, French horn player in the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, recently received a horn fellowship with the New World Symphony beginning in September 2014. As a member of the Civic Orchestra, Kevin has played under such esteemed conductors as Riccardo Muti, Michael Tilson Thomas, Nicholas McGegan, and Jaap van Zweden, and has worked closely with Daniel Gingrich, the acting principal horn of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Kevin has also had the chance to perform with the Chicago Symphony on several occasions the past two years, on second, fourth, and assistant horn parts. Over the past several years, Kevin has participated in numerous music festivals, including the Tanglewood Music Center, National Orchestral Institute, and New York String Orchestra Seminar. At these festivals, Kevin has had the chance to work with incredible musicians and renowned horn players, including Bob Ward, David Jolley, Hermann Baumann, and the entire horn section of the Boston Symphony. Kevin is finishing up his BM at Northwestern, where he has studied under the tutelage of Gail Williams and Jonathan Boen. As a founding member of the Lincoln Chamber Brass, Kevin has immensely enjoyed working with his quintet-mates in their preparation for the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition at Notre Dame. After four years of studying in the brutal Chicago winter, Kevin is ready to move to Miami in the fall to perform with the New World Symphony, under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas.
