Kate Stone, horn

Kate, an Okanagan native, has been living in Ontario since 1989, joining Orchestra London in 1991. Kate credits much of her success to Richard Ely, her teacher at the University of Victoria. “When I went to university, I didn’t have it in my head to become a professional musician, but I ended up with a really great horn teacher who pushed me along.” At Ely’s insistence, Stone auditioned for – and won – her very first professional audition with the Victoria Symphony.

In addition to the Victoria Symphony and Orchestra London, Kate held a position with the Thunder Bay Symphony and currently performs regularly at the Stratford Festival. She has also performed with Kitchener- Waterloo Symphony, Hamilton Phil, Tafelmusik and National Arts Centre Orchestra.

Her trombone playing husband, Rob, helps her juggle her life filled with concerts, home schooling their two sons, Harrison and William, and experiments with cooking gluten free meals. She hopes that her 18th season with Orchestra London will be blessed with beautiful music and abundance.
