Featured Musician

Bill Tyler – Third Horn

Bill Tyler, a native of western New York, joined the Fayetteville Symphony as third horn in 2011. He attended the University of Memphis for undergraduate work and the University of Wyoming for graduate school, and was a concerto contest winner at both schools. His primary horn instructors were Richard Dolph (Memphis) and William Stacy (Wyoming), both excellent instructors who did their best, knowing that the odds were stacked against them in trying to teach Bill the basics of horn playing. They were relieved (and somewhat surprised) when he actually graduated from both schools. 

Past performing experience includes the Cheyenne Symphony, Abilene (TX) Philharmonic, the Charlotte Civic Orchestra and the occasional opera at Central Piedmont Community College. He has participated in workshops with Michael Thompson, Richard Watkins, David Ohanian, Skip Snead, Barry Tuckwell and Bruce Moore, and each one would very much appreciate not being reminded of it. 

Bill retired from the FAA in 2010, after working for over 25 years as an air traffic controller. His spare time is now spent on catching up on yard work (after years of neglect), trying to appear to be useful around the house, putting off cleaning out the garage (after many years of neglect), playing the horn all over North and South Carolina, working out at the gym (after even more years of neglect) and finding creative ways of goofing off. He is also a member of the Greenville (SC) Symphony and the Carolina Philharmonic. He can also be found occasionally bothering performing with the Winston Salem Symphony, Hendersonville Symphony, Western Piedmont Symphony, Charlotte Symphony, South Carolina Philharmonic, Salisbury Symphony – and basically any other group that will put up with him.

To Educate. To Entertain. To Inspire.

The Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1956 in Fayetteville, North Carolina, and is a professional, regional orchestra whose mission is to educate, entertain, and inspire the citizens of the Fayetteville, North Carolina region as the leading musical resource.  Praised for its artistic excellence, the Symphony leads in the cultural and educational landscape for Fayetteville and the southeastern North Carolina region.

The Fayetteville Symphony typically performs 8 concerts during any given season performing both at Methodist University and Fayetteville State University. Partnerships with other agencies include collaborative performances with Cape Fear Regional Theatre, chamber concerts at St. John’s Episcopal Church, as well as the city’s annual Independence concert with fireworks. The Symphony brings music to the schools and the community by performing educational concerts, as well as having its own Fayetteville Symphony Youth Orchestra, after school strings and summer music camps.

This organization is supported in part by a space grant from the BB&T Term Endowment of Cumberland Community Foundation, Inc.
