Amy Lassiter joined the DPO as Fourth Horn in 2002 and currently is Second Horn.
Amy earned an undergraduate degree from Georgia Southern University and a Master’s Degree from UC’s College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) where she studied with Randy Gardner.
While working on a DMA at CCM she played one season with the Louisville Symphony to cover a sabbatical. She has played Principal Horn for the Richmond (IN) Symphony and has been a member of the Cincinnati Ballet Orchestra.
Amy has also played as an extra and/or substitute horn with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, Columbus Symphony Orchestra and West Virginia Symphony. Her love of travel has allowed her to play with the Buffalo Philharmonic and perform with groups in Italy and Bosnia.
She recently traveled for pleasure to Hawaii for the first time and is looking forward to an Australian holiday. Amy is a member of the DPO’s Players’ Committee and is a proud “Mom” to a 16 year-old kitty named Brio.
