Trombonist Kathryn Macintosh was born in Montréal but spent her formative years in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. She studied at Acadia University and the University of Toronto, and while in her early twenties joined the Edmonton Symphony as Assistant Principal Trombone. She currently serves on the board of the ESO/Winspear Centre, and mentors young musicians as an ESO/YONA Ambassador. Also active as a producer, Kathryn started the C'mon (Chamber music old & new) Festival in 2013 to share the richness of classical music with a more diverse audience.
