French Horn: Nicolas Ireson

French Horn: Nicholas Ireson

Nick Ireson enjoys a busy career as a performer, working with a variety of orchestras and ensembles across the UK and abroad. He is often to be found under the stage playing for various ballet companies and occasionally ventures above ground onto the concert platform too.

Born and raised in St Albans, Nick has been a professional horn player for 10 years, having graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in 2009, after reading music at Christ Church, Oxford. Away from playing, he enjoys sports documentaries and walking his dog, preferably to the pub.

The French horn, uncoiled, is about 20 feet long, which is around the same height of a two-story house.
