Kentucky native Kimberlee (Kimmi) Hebdon is the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Principal French Hornist. This is her first season with the Philharmonic.

Kimmi’s love for music grew quickly when at age 7 she took part in an “instrument petting zoo” with the Billings Montana Symphony Orchestra and she was able to try out the horn for the first time. She started playing the French horn in school when she was 12. Kimmi spent her high school years in Kentucky playing and soloing with the Louisville Youth Orchestra and playing side by side with professionals in the Louisville Orchestra. She spent her summers at the Kentucky Governor’s School for the Arts and at the Interlochen Summer Institute and Festival as the Moe and Francine Endowed Music Scholar. She was also the recipient of the William Tolbert Whittenberg Scholarship for Performing Arts Excellence through the Fund for the Arts Campaign which helped fund her college education. Read more.
