Christopher Caudill began playing the horn at age ten while living in London, England with his family. Piano and violin lessons failed to do the trick, but a London Symphony concert at the Barbican with famous soloist Barry Tuckwell made him fall in love with the horn. At Northwestern University he studied with the Chicago Symphony’s solo horn Dale Clevenger and was a member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago. He spent two summers with the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, and toured Russia with the American-Russian Youth Orchestra.
He was a member of the New World Symphony in Miami Beach for three years (where he met his future wife, NCS horn section colleague Rachel NIketopoulos) before being invited to play Principal Horn with the Honolulu Symphony for the 1997-98 season. After two years with the Virginia Symphony he joined the North Carolina Symphony in 2003.
He has performed on Natural Horn with the North Carolina Baroque and the Brussels Chamber Orchestra and he and his wife perform on Baroque and Classical horn copies by Richard Seraphinoff of Indiana University.
