Horn virtuoso Leelanee Sterrett returns to the New Haven Symphony this week for two performances as the soloist in Richard Strauss' Horn Concerto No. 2 in New Haven and on the Essex Winter Series.

After performing with the symphony for several seasons, Leelanee was recently appointed assistant principal horn of the New York Philharmonic.  She also formed a quartet, Genghis Barbie, with fellow horn players.

Kate Remington talked with Leelanee about her career, and the fun she has performing for young musicans.
