Patty Diederichs

I’m Patty Diederichs, a St. Cloud native, who attended St. Cloud State University for my Bachelor of Music Degree. I went on to study horn performance with Professor Douglas Hill at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where I graduated with a Master of Music degree.

While in Wisconsin, it was my pleasure to perform with the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra as well as the Madison Symphony Orchestra. I’ve performed in both the Chicago and Washington DC areas.

Before teaching at St. Cloud State University, I taught at Elgin Community College and Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp as well as private lessons. Currently I perform with the St. Cloud Symphony Orchestra as principal horn, Granite City Brass Quintet and other organizations as invited.
