Jamie Marci has been a freelance horn player and instructor in Connecticut since 1999. Born and raised in the Midwest, she moved to the east coast after completing her Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia. During her four years in Columbia, she attended the Aspen Music Festival for two summers and studied under John Cerminaro. The graduate program at the Hartt School of Music brought her to New England and the freelancing and teaching opportunities have kept her there. In November 2003 she won a position on the Hartford Symphony’s substitute list. She is third horn with the New Britain Symphony, the Bristol Symphony and the Wallingford Symphony and has also played with the United States Coast Guard Band, the Bridgeport Symphony, the Ridgefield Symphony and for Josh Groban and LeAnn Rimes.
