Larry Williams, Horn, in Lyric Brass Quintet, Sphinx Orchestra & Soulful Symphony

[Larry Williams]

Larry Williams, horn
Larry Williams has distinguished himself as a multifaceted musician whose artistry led the late Philip Farkas, former Principal Horn of the Chicago Symphony and master teacher, to describe him as 'an outstanding artist-soloist with fine tone, excellent intonation, superb accuracy, and superior musicianship.' Ebony magazine listed Mr. Williams as one of the '50 Leaders of Tomorrow' in 1995 and The Maine Sunday Telegram described Larry as 'a phenomenally good horn player, with the brilliance for solo work and the ear to blend perfectly with a string quartet that has been playing together for years.'

“Currently a member of The Lyric Brass Quintet, Principal Horn, Sphinx Orchestra (Detroit), Principal Horn, Soulful Symphony. Williams served as Principal Horn of The New World Symphony under the direction of Sir Michael Tilson Thomas, and has performed with the Baltimore, Pittsburgh, and San Francisco Symphony Orchestras.” “Williams currently serves on the Horn faculty of The Peabody Institute where he also serves as Director of The Adult & Continuing Education Program, and Chair of the Preparatory Brass & Winds Dept. Mr. Williams is also an Adjunct Professor of Horn at The Morgan State University.”
