Yoni Kahn, french horn

Yoni Kahn is pursuing a double life as a theoretical physicist and freelance musician. He holds degrees from Northwestern University in physics, math, horn performance, and composition, as well as a Masters of Advanced Studies from the University of Cambridge. Yoni is currently a Ph.D. student at MIT, studying high-energy particle physics, and his musical interests span the spectrum from historical performance to newly composed works. He has performed on natural horn with Cambridge Concentus, Helios Early Opera, Harvard Baroque Chamber Orchestra, and the MIT Grand Canonical Ensemble, and on modern horn with Symphony by the Sea, the Longwood Symphony, and Boston New Music Initiative. Equally at home with chamber music, Yoni is the hornist for the Modern Brass Quintet and has recently performed the horn trios of Ligeti, Brahms, and Harbison. His teachers include Gail Williams, William Barnewitz, Jean Rife, and R.J. Kelley.
