Members of the ensemble performing tonight are true “Hollywood” musicians, currently recording the orchestral music for upcoming films such as the Lion King re-animation, and Spiderman: Far from Home. Other recent blockbusters include Incredibles 2, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Coco, Cars 3, Moana, Star Wars: Rogue One, Finding Dory, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Big Hero 6, Frozen, Star Trek Beyond, and Jurassic World. Horns for Rhinos musicians can be heard weekly on television shows Twilight Zone (2019), Star Trek Discovery, The Orville, Family Guy, American Dad, the Simpsons, and seen on The Voice, American Idol and The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Members of the ensemble hold Principal positions with LA Chamber Orchestra, LA Opera, and Pacific Symphony, and perform with the LA Philharmonic, San Diego Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, Las Vegas Philharmonic. They’ve toured the world with broadway shows, professional brass quintets, rock shows, and world class orchestras.
