Forrest Byram

Principal Tuba

I’m from the Chicago area, but have been a Californian for quite some time. I was very fortunate in being able to attend Northwestern University, where I studied with Arnold Jacobs and was surrounded by many amazing young musicians. I am fortunate now in being able to make a living as a freelance musician. I have contracts with five northern California orchestras, which makes me part of the famed “Freeway Philharmonic.”
