Endowed Chair, Fred Fox-French Horn Studies
Music Bldg, Room 240
Prof. Daniel Katzen begins his tenure at the University of Arizona faculty this Fall. This year he is spliting his time between commitments in Tucson and on the East coast, as he finishes his 29th year as Second Horn of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, a position he has held since 1979. In addition, he is in his final year teaching horn and brass repertoire at New England Conservatory and Boston University. Prof. Katzen also consults with the orchestral program at University of California in Irvine, and performs and records with various Los Angeles orchestras and film studios.
Prof. Katzen’s studies and performance career have taken him to 25 states and 22 foreign countries on five continents to perform more than 5000 concerts. In March of 2008, he will be featured in his premiere solo recital at the U. of A. and his farewell appearance at New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall.
Prof. Katzen says “I am delighted to be able to get back West again, and to continue Dr. Keith Johnson’s work at the University of Arizona. I am tremendously impressed with the students, faculty and administration at the School of Music and the opportunities to further develop the Horn Studio.”
