Momo Hoshi is a multi-instrumentalist, interdisciplinary artist, and educator. Hoshi enjoys being a jack-of-all-trades and has played saxophone (all voices), oboe, English horn, clarinet, flute, tuba, and even bass drum and castanet in various music performances throughout their undergraduate study at Stanford University. After graduating from Stanford with two bachelor's degrees (one in Music, one in Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity), Hoshi has had the opportunity to perform professionally in several pit orchestras (both live performance and remote recording) as well as in a few small chamber group projects. Hoshi's performance experiences range from orchestras and chamber groups to musical theater and, more recently, funk music and improvisation. Hoshi also has some experience as a conductor, including directing a live ballroom dance orchestra, music directing a musical, and even rehearsing a marching band.
Born and raised in San Diego, Hoshi now calls the San Francisco Bay Area home. By day, Hoshi is a Senior Health Educator who is experienced with teaching K-12 students of diverse backgrounds and learning styles. Fun Fact: they are also in charge of illustrations and graphic design at their organization! Hoshi also dabbles in voice (alto), movement work (contemporary dance), and voice acting. Although those are all work-in-progress skills for Hoshi, they understand and value the intricately interwoven nature of various artistic disciplines. Music does not exist in a vacuum, and neither do musicians -- this is the truth that motivates Hoshi's occasional work in writing pieces analyzing the relationship between music, culture, ethnicity, gender, and identity.
