Kyle is running for Executive Board of Local 802 to build a stronger union for all its members.
I believe that reaching out to and inspiring the younger generation of musicians is paramount to the survival of Local 802. I am running for a position on the Executive Board to, hopefully, be part of a new wave of influencers in our union who are dedicated to making necessary and meaningful change in the music industry.
As a French Horn player, I have performed with the New Haven Symphony, Orchestra of St. Lukes, American Ballet Theater, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Knights Chamber Orchestra, Bard Music Festival Orchestral and Chamber Music Programs, Columbus Symphony and Syracuse Symphony. Previously, I was Associate Principal French horn with the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra. Broadway experience includes Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Something Rotten and Sideshow. I am a member of the Radio City Orchestra and have recorded with Naxos, Telarc, Nimbus Records, CBS, and NFL Films. I am on the faculty at Montclair State University.
Working in our industry for the last 20 years has given me perspective regarding how and why we need to adapt to the ever-changing landscape that confronts our industry. With fresh leadership, we can begin to confront the challenges that loom large. This includes electing an Executive Board that represents the diversity of our membership. I will bring new ideas to the table and work hard on behalf of my colleagues to bring about the broad changes that are necessary for our survival.
