Charlotte Symphony Orchestra

Lauded for his “verve and stylistic excellence” (The Post and Courier–Free Times), Mexican-American horn player Andrew Fierova has performed throughout the United States, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, England, and Austria. Andrew currently fills the Second Horn chair in the Charlotte Symphony and has also performed with the Atlanta Symphony, North Carolina Symphony, Jacksonville Symphony, and Charleston Symphony.

Andrew maintains a private studio of students from middle school through adult and is on faculty at Davidson College. He conducts two brass choirs as a member of the Cornelius Youth Orchestras’ artistic faculty, and also founded the Brass Challenge program, an instrument-specific intensive training program that introduces beginners to all aspects of their instrument, concluding with ensemble playing.

His former students have been accepted into The Juilliard School, Peabody Institute, Indiana University, Davidson College, University of South Carolina, University of North Carolina Greensboro, University of Alabama, Duke University, Appalachian State University, University of Pennsylvania, Radford University, The University of New Mexico, and Interlochen Arts Academy.

Andrew has had the pleasure of being a Featured Artist for the NC Horn Day, and has presented master classes at The University of Texas at Austin, University of South Carolina, and Brevard Music Center. He has enjoyed several summers on faculty with Cannon Music Camp and Wintergreen Music Festival. Andrew holds degrees from The Juilliard School and University of South Carolina.
