Rheagan Osteen, originally from the mountains of Tennessee, is sweeping the New York scene as an active freelancer. As a chamber musician, Rheagan has performed at Carnegie Hall in Robert Levin's Mozart Explored series alongside her former teacher, David Jolley, and as the hornist of the award-winning quintet Intrada Winds, with whom she has also given performances and masterclasses throughout the country. She is a founder of the Aeolian Collective, an active and eclectic chamber music group in Manhattan in addition to her founding role in Uncommon Temperament.
Rheagan is a frequent soloist with the Chelsea Symphony, where her repertoire has included Mozart's Horn Concerto No. 2 and Haydn's Horn Concerto No. 1, and where she recently performed Brandenburg Concerto No. 1.

She plays with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, the Westchester Philharmonic, the Brooklyn Philharmonic, the Long Island Philharmonic, the Greenwich Symphony Orchestra, and the Connecticut Grand Opera. A strong proponent of new music, Rheagan also performs regularly with the American Composer's Orchestra.
