Meet your Florida Orchestra members . . . Robert Rearden, principal French horn

Age: 29

With the orchestra since: October

Hometown: Sumter, S.C.

Education: Cleveland Institute of Music and University of South Carolina

Age I started studying my instrument: 11

Favorite date night place to eat out: I'm new, I need a date, and she can pick the place if she wants. The orchestra has my number . . .

My iPod's usually playing: When I'm not listening to classical music (I happen to enjoy it!), I've got a mix of artists in my "favorites" list: Dave Matthews Band, the Fray, the Black Eyed Peas and Radiohead, to name a few.

Hobbies and interests: My friends say I'm too interested in fast food — I have a favorite order at almost every fast-food restaurant. I enjoy watching a few TV shows: Chuck, The Office, Friday Night Lights and The Apprentice are some of my favorites. I enjoy exercising (though I ought to exercise more often).

Some little-known (but interesting) fact about you: I hate peas. Just try to name one fast-food restaurant that serves them!
