Faculty Artist Series presents Caroline Steiger, horn
"Modular: A recital program featuring music by Florent Schmitt, Daniel Schnyder, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Kevin Ernste
8:00 p.m.
Performing Arts Center Recital Hall

Caroline Steiger, active teacher, clinician, and performer both in large and small ensemble settings, joins the Texas State faculty as a new Assistant Professor of Music and artist/teacher of horn. 

She grew up in Southeast Michigan and went on to study at the University of Michigan, earning a B.M. in Horn performance with Teacher Certification in 2010. She earned her M.M. in Horn Performance from Penn State University and her D.M.A. in performance at the University of Michigan in 2015. 

As a teacher Dr. Steiger has held positions at SUNY Potsdam’s Crane School of Music (Visiting Assistant Professor of Horn, 2014), Penn State University (Teacher Assistant), and the University of Michigan (Graduate Student Assistant).  She currently has a thriving private studio in Michigan where several of her students participate in Solo and Ensemble at the District and State levels and perform at the Michigan Youth Arts Festival.  While at Penn State University, Caroline was the Assistant Director of the Penn State Horn Ensemble and helped plan tours that included performances at the Pennsylvania Music Educator’s Association (PMEA) conference, Lancaster, and Hershey, PA. 

Dr. Steiger’s work as a musician has included regular performances with the Toledo Symphony Orchestra as well as playing with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings, and the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra during its 2015 US tour.  In addition, Dr. Steiger has held Principal positions with the Dearborn Symphony (Dearborn, MI), Adrian Symphony (Adrian, MI), Rochester Symphony (Rochester, MI), Oakland Symphony (Rochester, MI), Orchestra of Northern New York (Potsdam, NY), and the Northern Symphonic Winds (Potsdam, NY).  She has performed in great halls across the country, including Carnegie Hall, Orchestra Hall in Detroit, Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh, the Music Center at Strathmore in Bethesda, and Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor, getting a chance to work with conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Leonard Slatkin, Stefan Sanderling, Lio Kuokman, Karina Canellakis, and Giordano Bellincampi.

Committed to chamber music, Dr. Steiger has played with the Potsdam Brass Quintet, faculty quintet-in-residence at SUNY Potsdam, and the Emblems Woodwind Quintet, an Ann Arbor-based quintet focused on performing new and underrepresented works. In 2015 she participated in a chamber music residency at the University of Michigan with New York Philharmonic principal winds, where she performed with Philip Myers.  A commitment to new music is evident through her participation in chamber ensembles as well as the University of Michigan’s Contemporary Directions Ensemble, which premiered several works by U of M composition students and participated in the Midwest Composers Symposium in 2013. 

Dr. Steiger’s main teachers include Adam Unsworth, Bryan Kennedy, Lisa Bontrager, Soren Hermansson, and Corbin Wagner.  She has also studied with and participated in master classes with Gail Williams, Fergus McWilliam, David Krehbiel, Robert Ward, Bernhard Scully, and Jeffrey Lang.
