I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT BRINGING MUSIC TO COMMUNITIES THAT WOULD OTHERWISE NOT BE EXPOSED TO IT.

Dominic Hayes is an active freelance horn player based in Michigan. He is currently the Principal Horn of the Adrian Symphony Orchestra, the Michigan Philharmonic, and the Dearborn Symphony Orchestra. He is also the French Horn Instructor at the Flint School of Performing Arts.

Dominic has worked to bring his skills to communities that under represent the arts. Growing up in rural Michigan, Dominic had few opportunities to experience live professional music. He personally understands the importance of bringing the performing arts to communities that would otherwise not be exposed to them. He has helped put together educational concerts, masterclasses, and coachings for dozens of schools, aiming to show students what classical music looks like up close.
