Tutti Horn

Lisa Wynne-Allen holds the position of Tutti Horn in the Opera Australia Orchestra having first joined the Orchestra in 2004. Lisa began her musical studies at the age of thirteen and under the tutelage of Dominic Harvey and Darryl Poulsen went on to complete a Bachelor of Music at Canberra School of Music and University of Western Australia. 

In addition to the French Horn, Lisa also plays the Classical Horn. Lisa has played in a number of orchestras over the course of her career including the Australian Youth Orchestra, the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, The orchestra of the Age of the Antipodes and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.

Fun fact: Lisa's favourite composer would have to be Richard Strauss.  Not just because of the great writing for French Horn but also because of the range of emotions his music evokes.
