Jay Chadwick horn playerFor over twenty-five years, Jay Chadwick has combined a passion for playing the horn with a full-time legal career. He studied the horn at the College of William and Mary with David Wick of the Virginia Symphony. Jay maintains an active orchestral performance schedule in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., having performed for years with the McLean Orchestra and the Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic.  He currently serves as the principal horn in the Avanti Orchestra, and performs every summer with the Shenandoah Valley Bach Festival. Jay loves exploring the horn’s role in chamber music, including brass quintets, woodwind quintets, and string ensembles. As a founding member of the Patagonia Winds, Jay has helped commission multiple original works for woodwind quintet.  In between rehearsals and gigs, Jay can be found practicing commercial law in Northern Virginia and checking out used horns on eBay.
