Kit Weber

Kit Weber comes from a family of amateur musicians. The youngest of three children, he followed in his sisters' footsteps of piano lesson at age 5 and eagerly awaited his turn to join the school band. The wait proved to be too long, so when he was in second grade, his father alleviated the sibling rivalry by pulling out his old horn and teaching Kit the fingerings.

Kit and his family recently moved to the Twin Cities, after living in Salt Lake City for seven years. While in SLC, Kit helped to found and run Aspen Winds, a woodwind quintet which primarily focused on performing new music in both recitals and educational performances. As an orchestral player, he held the position of Assistant/Utility Horn with the Boise Philharmonic, and has also served as a substitute for the Minnesota Orchestra, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Ann Arbor Symphony, Utah Symphony, Windsor Symphony, and has performed with many of the various orchestras throughout Michigan.  

 

Kit attended Illinois State University where he studied with Joe Neisler and the University of Michigan where he studied with Sören Hermansson.  He also sought out Detroit Symphony musicians Bryan Kennedy, Denise Tryon and Karl Pituch for additional studies.  Kit currently performs on a Kortesmaki Geyer-style horn.
