Fox Valley / French Horn News

For those who play the French Horn or who live near the Fox Valley, there is a special event happening on Saturday February 19th. Dr. Bruce Atwell from UW-Oshkosh has organized French Horn Day: a full day of activities for those playing the French Horn.

Students can get help preparing for solo and ensemble competitions. The attendees are invited to perform in a Horn Choir concert at 4PM. And this just in: The Fox Valley Horn Choir will perform the theme from Raiders Of the Lost Ark at the evening concert. The performance will be recorded and posted on You Tube following the concert.

Special guests for Horn Day will be the world renowned American Horn Quartet. They will conduct a master class in the afternoon, and perform in concert in the evening. They will also sit in with the Fox Valley Horn Choir for the performance of Raiders.

This is a great opportunity to hear one of the worlds best chamber ensembles. And if you have a student (or are a student) studying horn, here is a great opportunity to receive a critique on the solo or ensemble piece they/you have been working on.
