SUB PRINCIPAL, HORN

Heather Thompson

Heather graduated from Auckland University in modern languages and music and was one of the first recipients of the Alex Lindsay Award, which helped with post graduate study  in Berlin and London. After five years living and working with orchestras in the UK and Europe, she returned to NZ and joined the NZSO horn section.

Life outside orchestral playing and raising three children lured her to a back country sheep farm in Oparau for twelve years, but orchestral life eventually pulled her back to the NZSO.

Now with grandchildren in Perth, Toronto and Prague, traveling to see them all, with her husband Steve, is a wonderful necessity, along with learning new languages.
