The Über Horn Quartet is much more than a quartet. Whether performing classical or contemporary genres, this exciting ensemble is at ease sharing its passion for music with audiences of all ages. Over the past three years, Über has been honored to appear as featured performers and clinicians at the Chicago Brass Festival, the Illinois Wesleyan University Winter Horn Fest, the Midwest Regional Horn Workshop at St. Thomas University, Ball State University, University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, University of Central Arkansas, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Fall Festival Horn Day, and continues to receive performance opportunities throughout the U.S.
When not performing as a quartet, the hornists of Über can be found in Chicago’s freelance orchestral scene and perform with the region’s top orchestras, including the Ars Viva, Dubuque, Illinois, Kenosha, Light Opera Works, Peoria, and South Bend Symphony orchestras. They have played with other well-known ensembles such as the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Chicago Philharmonic, Millar Brass Ensemble, Milwaukee Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Elgin Symphony, and the Arkansas Symphony. Non-symphonic appearances include touring with Star Wars in Concert, and bookings for Peter Gabriel, Josh Groban, Barbara Streisand, Video Games Live!, Il Volo, Mannheim Steamroller, and others. As devoted educators, members of the quartet hold teaching positions at North Park University, Illinois Wesleyan University, Sherwood Conservatory, The Music Institute of Chicago, University of Illinois at Chicago, and private studios throughout the Chicago area.
