Town: Bridgton, Maine

Instruments: French Horn

Steven Sweetsir is a graduate of The New England Conservatory of Music with a bachelor of music performance and a master of music from Ithaca College. Steve grew up in a musical family in Portland, Maine. His grandfather, Arthur H. Stevens, was a bandmaster and first horn in the Portland Symphony. His mother, Agnes (also a member of the Bridgton Community Band) was the second horn in the Portland Symphony for many years

Steven and his wife Colleen were both members of the US Coast Guard Band in New London, CT and were both active players and conductors. Steven is the music director and chief conductor of the Delaware Valley Wind Symphony which is a professional level group based in Pennsylvania. He is also the founding director and conductor of the Fanfare Winds, a 45 piece advanced high school aged ensemble that is part of the Youth Orchestra of Bucks County (PA).

Steven also plays horn in several orchestras and is active in chamber music and as a soloist in the greater Philadelphia area. Steve and Colleen own a home in Bridgton and spend summers here. Playing with the Bridgton Community Band is a source of great enjoyment every summer. Last year they were joined by the rest of their horn playing family in a concert by his sister Lynn, daughter Erin along with his mother - making a total of 5 family horn players!
