Ron George, horn

Born in San Francisco, Ronald George began his horn lessons with Earl Saxton. Upon moving to Canada he pursued his musical studies through high school with Robert Creech and then at the University of Toronto with Eugene Rittich. With the generous aid of a grant from the Canada Council, Ron continued his studies in Essen, Germany with Hermann Baumann.

Since 1979 Ronald George has held the position of principal horn with Orchestra London Canada, with whom he appears regularly as a soloist. As well as his duties with OLC, Ronald teaches at the Faculty of Music at the University of Western Ontario. Ron is in demand both as an orchestral and chamber musician and can be heard regularly on the CBC. Some of Ron's more recent activities include performing with the Canadian Opera Company in their Wagner Ring Cycle production, a European tour with the Calgary Philharmonic, a Japanese tour of Don Giovanni with Opera Atelier, recordings and performances with the National Arts Centre Orchestra, concerts at the Ottawa Chamber Music Festival, touring and recording with Tafelmusik, a performance of the Ligeti Trio at the University of Western Ontario, a performance of the Strauss Second Horn Concerto with Orchestra London, the Britten Serenade with the Thunder Bay Symphony and the International Symphony, perfomances with the Kitchener-Waterloo, Toronto and Detroit Symphony Orchestras and the premiere of a new work for horn and piano written by London's Jeff Christmas at the International Horn Society Symposium held at Western Michigan University.

Ron is fortunate and proud to be performing on a hand crafted instrument made in Canada by Keith Berg.
