Biography of Musica Bella Orchestra member Bill Hinson

Bill Hinson, horn, is a native of St. Louis, and studied with the principal horn players of both the St. Louis and Chicago Symphony Orchestras. He played for the St. Louis Symphony under Leonard Slatkin before leaving St. Louis to pursue a masters degree in accounting. Since arriving in New York, he has served as soloist at the 92nd Street Y, where he was winner of the Mozart concerto competition, as well as other regional orchestral, opera, and chamber organizations. Since 1992 he has played horn with the Gotham Winds, one of the city’s leading woodwind quintets. Previous to this, he played solo horn with the Proteus Chamber Group and was a regular performer with the 92nd Street Y Chamber Players.
      Unfortunately (for us), Bill has moved to Spain, so you (and we) probably won’t be seeing him very much any more.
