Guy’s introduction to horn playing started at the age of 11 when he was asked to stop playing the trumpet and make up numbers in the depleted horn section of the school orchestra. Encouraged by this, Guy continued his horn studies to higher education, obtaining a degree in Music at Cambridgeshire College of Arts and Technology (now Anglia Ruskin University) followed by an advanced performance course at the Royal College Of Music in 1989.
After a taste of musical life in London, Guy settled in Cambridge where his playing has flourished with many musical organisations including the Cambridge University Musical Society, Cambridge Philharmonic Society, Cambridge Orchestra, K239 Chamber Orchestra, the Sinfonia of Cambridge and performances with students at Anglia Ruskin University.
Guy is also in demand as a soloist and recent performances include Mozart’s Horn Concerto No 4, Haydn’s Double Horn Concerto, Concerto for Horn and Wind band by Marco Putz, the Britten Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings and Strauss Horn Concerto No 1. Chamber work includes solo horn performances and recordings with Prime Brass, which he co-founded in 1990 and The Tony Halstead Horn Ensemble.
