We Are NY Phil: Acting Associate Principal Horn Leelanee Sterrett

Posted March 06, 2020

We Are NY Phil brings you closer to Philharmonic musicians by focusing on their lives outside the concert hall and following the activities they are most passionate about.

Just in time for Women’s History Month, the third video of the series features Acting Associate Principal Horn Leelanee Sterrett, who talks about championing women composers and teaching the next generation of horn players.

“It was really important to me as a woman to start preparing and presenting music by women,” she said.

Watch the video above and on Facebook and IGTV.
