Playing on Ice: Catherine Turner Joins the Montreal Symphony

Horn player Catherine Turner recently won the second horn position with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra. She moved from San Antonio, Texas (where she played fourth horn with the San Antonio Symphony) to Canada in January. On May 6, she performed with members of the orchestra at an NHL Stanley Cup playoff game in Montreal. The all-brass ensemble, conducted by Kent Nagano, performed the national anthems at the Eastern Conference Semifinal match-up between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Montreal Canadiens.

Catherine’s brother, Tom Turner, who also performed on From the Top, is in his junior year at Ohio State University, where he studies mechanical engineering.
