Kimberly Gilman




Kimberly Gilman joins the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra as 2nd horn this season. Gilman comes to the ASO from the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, where she served for ten years under music director JoAnn Falletta. During her time in Virginia, Gilman was an active solo recitalist and performed regularly as a featured artist with the Virginia Arts Festival's celebrated chamber music series.


A native of southern New Jersey, Gilman has performed with orchestras all over the Northeast. While still a conservatory student, she was in demand as a freelance artist in Philadelphia and New York City and held tenured positions in a number of regional orchestras. Gilman received her musical training at the Peabody Conservatory, the Manhattan School of Music and the Juilliard School, where she was a student of the late Jerome Ashby. 


Gilman lives in Marietta with her husband, Grant, and their two young daughters.
