Robert Hoyle

Robert Hoyle is originally from the Philadelphia area. He began studying horn at the age of 14 with Nolan Miller and entered the Curtis Institute of Music at the age of 17 while still in high school.   While a student of Mason Jones at Curtis, Bob frequently performed and recorded with the Philadelphia Orchestra.   He continued his studies at Yale University and earned his master's degree at the Hartt School of Music as a student of Paul Ingraham.  Bob served as principal horn with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra and was a frequent soloist with that group performing works by Bach, Britten, Mozart, Barsanti, Telemann and others.   Bob has also toured as associate principal horn of the Minnesota Orchestra.   Equally comfortable with chamber music, Hoyle has toured extensively throughout North America and Europe.   He has performed at the Festival Casals in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and has appeared as soloist with the Grammy-winning Emerson String Quartet.   As a teacher, Hoyle has served on the faculties of the Hartt School of Music, the University of Akron, Trinity College, Wesleyan University, Central Connecticut State University, the University of Connecticut, and the Hartford-Camerata Conservatory.   Hoyle has recorded for Angel/EMI and CRI.


We are certainly looking forward to Bob joining us at KBHC again in 2017!
