Alex Rosenfeld

Alex Rosenfeld is an active professional hornist, performing with orchestras all over the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. He currently holds the positions of Principal Horn with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, and Third Horn with the Stockton Symphony.

A native of Philadelphia, Alex began his musical study at a young age on the violin. After discovering the horn in his school band, he went on to study at Northwestern University with Gail Williams, and at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music with Robert Ward. He was then appointed Assistant Principal Horn with the Louisiana Philharmonic, where he played for three seasons, followed by one season as Associate Principal horn with the Rochester Philharmonic. He has also played two seasons with the Sarasota Opera Orchestra, and previously held the position of Second Horn with the Santa Cruz Symphony.

Highlights of his most recent musical season include both domestic and European tours with the San Francisco Symphony, and serving as guest Principal Horn with the New Zealand Symphony in Wellington, NZ. Alex is also an active chamber musician and teacher. In his free time he enjoys running, cycling and brewing beer. He lives with his wife Katie Curran, a professional trombonist, in the Cole Valley neighborhood of San Francisco.
