Meredith Brown

Meredith Brown (horn), a native of East Lansing, MI, attended Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, MD and the San Francisco Conservatory, where she received her Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Music, respectively. Meredith currently resides in Vallejo, CA with her husband, Bruce Chrisp.

What time not spent practicing or in servile duty to their four cats is spent driving around the Bay Area to play with groups such as Symphony Silicon Valley, the Marin Symphony,
the Oakland East Bay Symphony, the Napa Valley Symphony and others, as well as to play extra parts with the San Francisco Symphony and Opera.

A need for a more tactile creative outlet has led Meredith to design and create fused glass jewelry and glass mosaics ( ), but needless to say, projects for her own use may sit for many months in unfinished states. Meredith enjoys teaching at California State University East Bay and San Jose State University, and squeezes in chamber music and solo appearances whenever possible. In July of 2007, she was awarded the Herbert C. Spencer Honorable Mention Award at the International Horn Competition of America, and can't wait to compete again in 2009.
