Here's something new and exciting for the Milwaukee area that has been around for a number of years in the Fox Valley...
To celebrate Christmas, the Fox Valley Horn Club and Choir (lots of French Horns) performs Christmas Music every year, the Saturday before Christmas. They call it Horns A Plenty Christmas. Two years ago, they set a Guinness world record for most French Horns playing Christmas Music. This year, they will again perform in Appleton on the Saturday before Christmas, Saturday December 19 at St. Joseph Middle School in Appleton, but Milwaukee will also get to experience Horns A Plenty Christmas concert at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday December 2. The concert begins at 7 PM.
The fun part is that, if you play a French Horn, you are welcome to join the group and play along! The music is not difficult so students are encouraged to play. And experienced horn players tell me that the concert is lots of fun. Just think of playing a concert with 80 other horn players! What fun!
Registration for hornists will begin at 5:30 at the Marcus Center on December 2.
