Lois Ash, French Horn

Baldwin Harbor JHS class of 1985
Baldwin HS class of 1988

Lois currently resides in Dover, DE with her husband Frank and their
dog Parker. Lois hasn't played her horn in a few years, but when she
was actively playing, she was Co-principal/third horn with the
Orquesta Sinfonica de Monterrey in Mexico. Lois has performed around
New York and D.C., with a highlight being a performance with Harry
Connick, Jr.

Lois realized that the freelance life was not for her and decided to
use her knowledge as a musician to pursue an arts administration
career. Lois is considering playing again, but as a hobby not a
career.
