Tim Skelly

Horn

Hometown: Sydney, Australia
Alma maters: Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM); Sydney Conservatorium of Music
Musical origins: I began playing Horn at age 10 to be in the school band program.
How did you hear about TŌN? Ed Carroll came to Melbourne, Australia in April to direct a Brass Project week at ANAM. The week was amazing and he introduced me to The Orchestra Now program and mentioned how fantastic it is. After some research and discussion with my teachers I thought it would be an amazing opportunity.
Favorite piece to play: There’s too many! Elgar’s In the South was in a program I played recently, which was a lot of fun. Brahms’ Piano Quartet, arranged for orchestra by Arnold Schoenberg, is also an amazing piece!
Favorite musical memory: Performing in the Sydney Opera House for the first time
Which composer would have had the best social media: Either Wagner or Stravinsky
Favorite fact about your instrument: The Germans, not the French, mostly developed the horn we play today.
Favorite non-classical band: I really like Snarky Puppy at the moment.
Musical guilty pleasure: Pub rock
Proudest accomplishment: Success in a professional audition earlier in the year
Piece of advice for a young classical musician: Be patient, work hard, listen, and go to the pub after the concert!
Time travel destination: The 90s
