Marc Guy has been teaching horn and music theory at SUNY Fredonia since 1983. He came to Fredonia after four years of performing in what at the time was the only full-time performing brass quintet in the United States - the Annapolis Brass Quintet. He traveled all over the world with the Annapolis Brass Quintet, playing concerts, recording, and working with students of all kinds. He has performed with the Baltimore, Chicago, and Chautauqua Symphony Orchestras, the Erie Philharmonic, and Keith Brion and the New Peerless Sousa Band.
Dr. Guy holds degrees from the Peabody Conservatory, Northwestern University and the State University of New York at Stony Brook where he studied with Robert Pierce, Dale Clevenger and William Purvis, respectively. He was a fellowship student at Tanglewood, studied chamber music at the Yale University Summer School of Music and Art, and attended Interlochen National Music Camp.
He concertizes extensively in the western New York area as a member of the Fredonia Faculty Brass Quintet, Fredonia Woodwind Quintet, and the Western New York Chamber Orchestra. He is also an adjudicator and has performed and presented at several NYSSMA conferences as soloist and as member of Fredonia faculty ensembles. In addition to playing the horn, Marc loves to sing and plays the piano and guitar. He has created many arrangements of hymns for horn and piano, trombone and piano, bell choir, and mixed voices.
