Paul G. Brown has played the French horn since 1958. He began working for the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra in 1973. Mr. Brown began as the 4th horn with Syracuse Symphony Orchestra and moved to 2nd horn in 1983. He has studied the French horn at various schools including North Carolina School of the Arts and Juilliard School of Music. Mr. Brown has been a private horn instructor since 1975. Mr. Brown’s favorite composers include J.S. Bach, Gabrieli, Mozart, Handel, and many more. His favorite musical genres are baroque, classical, and romantic.
Mr. Brown enjoys performing with Symphoria because of the audiences support since the Syracuse Symphony shut down. He believes without the audiences help and support the orchestra would not have been able to rebuild. He also believes that Symphoria's most important role in the community is to regain its place as the cornerstone of the musical arts in Syracuse and the entire Upstate region of New York. He hopes for Symphoria to become a vitally important part of the musical arts here and continue to nurture and develop these arts into the future once again.
When Mr. Brown is not playing the French horn he enjoys spending time with his wife Susan Loevenguth, whom he met when she worked in the office for the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra.
