An Associate Principal Horn with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, Jamie Hersch has been widely lauded for his artistry and virtuosic command of this most unforgiving instrument.

An active soloist and chamber artist, Jamie has performed as a soloist with the Boston Pops, the George Enescu Philharmonic, the Aspen Contemporary Ensemble, the Network for New Music, and in various chamber orchestras and ensembles in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., as well as in Europe and Asia.
In 2009, Jamie, along with cellist Daniel Gaisfotd, premiered the extensive two-hour horn and cello performance for the piece "Last Autumn" written by Jamie's brother, Michael Hersch. The performance was listed as the No. 1 classical event of the year by The Philadelphia Inquirer. The studio recording is set to be released in 2014.
