Grammy nominee THOMAS STACY, the vaunted solo English hornist of the New York Philharmonic, continues an active performance schedule since leaving the Orchestra. During his 39 seasons there he was soloist more than 70 times, with all recent music directors and several guest conductors, in performances in America, Asia and at numerous European music festivals, including the London Proms.

Millions have viewed his television appearances, as soloist twice on Live from Lincoln Center, three appearances on CBS This Morning, his profile on CBS Sunday Morning, and as a guest soloist with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on Music and the Spoken Word. He has also been featured on NPR's All Things Considered.

Stacy's artistry is responsible for the largest expansion of English Horn repertory in history. Several of his world premieres, including concerti by Rorem, Persichetti and Hodkinson (a work for electrified English horn) were with the New York Philharmonic. His Carnegie Hall debut was performing the Concerto for English Horn by Stanislaw Skrowaczewski.

Guest appearances abroad include those in England, Sweden, Korea, Japan, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, Scotland, Denmark, Venezuela and Canada. He has performed in almost every state in the U.S.

Mr. Stacy is the most recorded English Hornist in the world. In 2005 he received a Grammy nomination for his recording of Kenneth Fuch's EVENTIDE-Concerto for English Horn, with the London Symphony Orchestra on the Naxos Label. His recording of concerti for oboe d'amore with the Toronto Chamber Orchestra made the Billboard charts.

Mr. Stacy was recently recognized as a Distinguished Arkansan; he grew up in August, AR, population 3000. He graduated from the Eastman School of Music, With Distinction, where he studied with Robert Sprenkle and received the George Eastman Scholarship, presented by the faculty for distinguished achievement in all areas of study.
