Sylvia Alimena has an active conducting career as Music Director and Conductor of Eclipse Chamber Orchestra, the McLean Orchestra and Eclipse’s youth organization, Brass of Peace. In 1992 she and 22 of her National Symphony Orchestra colleagues formed the Eclipse Chamber Orchestra and began a composer-in-residence programme. She has conducted over a dozen world premières many of which were commissioned for the Eclipse Chamber Orchestra, including music of Mark Adamo, Truman Harris and Tom Myron.

A native of New York, Sylvia Alimena began playing the French horn in the Hicksville Public Schools at the age of nine. She began her professional career in Boston as a French hornist with the Boston Ballet Orchestra, the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, the award-winning Beacon Brass Quintet, and as principal horn of the Boston Lyric Opera and principal horn of the New Hampshire Symphony. She was critically acclaimed for her solo and offstage playing in the Boston Lyric Opera’s 1983 New York and Boston productions of Wagner’s Das Ring des Nibelungen. In 1985 she was hired by Music Director Mstislav Rostropovich as second horn of the National Symphony Orchestra, a position she currently still holds.
