A native of Santa Fe, New Mexico, Edmund Rollett joined the Utah Symphony in 2014 as Associate Principal Horn, and appointed Acting Principal Horn by Thierry Fischer the following year. He appears regularly with the Grand Teton Music Festival, and has held Principal positions in the National Symphony of Mexico, and the Mexico City Philharmonic. Mr. Rollett is a noted solo and chamber musician, concertizing in Mexico, Europe and throughout the intermountain West. In addition to extensive studio work in both the popular and classical genres, Mr. Rollett performs chamber music in a variety of settings, including a recent invitation to the Zacatecas International Chamber Music Festival. He is a frequent collaborator on the NOVA chamber series, notably including the Utah premiere and second-ever performance of Last Autumn, Michael Hersch’s monumental cycle for Horn and Cello, together with Nori Kishi. Mr. Rollett was privileged to study horn under several of the world’s great players and pedagogues, in Chicago with Gail Williams and William Barnewitz, and in Pittsburgh with Dennis Abelson and William Caballero.
