Biography

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.

Ambrose has previously served on the faculty for the Curtis Institute of Music Young Artists’ Summer Program, Drexel University, Settlement Music School, Interlochen Arts Camp, and taught undergraduate horn students at Yale University. Katy is especially interested in mentoring younger musicians and has taught for and developed programs and curricula for several education programs including the Philadelphia Orchestra School Partnership Program, Delaware Symphony school program and the “El-Sistema” inspired programs Tune-Up, Philly and Play On, Philly!

Katy earned an Artist Diploma from Yale University, her Masters degree from the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan, and is finishing her doctorate at Temple University in 2018. She was the recipient of the prestigious William D. Revelli Award from the University of Michigan School of Music and the Henry and Lucy Moses Fellowship from the Yale School of Music.
