Upcoming concerts and Attention Oshkosh Area French Horn Players

First, don't forget the upcoming concert by the Milwaukee Festival Brass on October 21st at St. Matthews Lutheran Church.  That's going to be a good one!  Don't miss it!

Also, here is an alert for those in the Racine area.  The Racine Concert Band performs on Thursday the 18th at Horlick High School at 7:30 PM.  They will perform one half of the concert while the High School Band performs the other half.  And, of course, there will be a massed band at the end.  I also learned that one of the pieces the Racine Band will perform is Norman Dello Joio's Scenes From The Lourve.  It is one of my all time favorites.  If you have a chance, be sure to attend because it will be a good concert!

Now, on to the topic of Horns.  One of the lesser known community music groups in Southeast Wisconsin is the UW Oshkosh Horn Choir under the direction of Dr. Bruce Atwell.  They have been performing for a few years now, and the quality has always been very good.  If you have not heard a choir of French Horns, be sure to attend their concert coming up the end of November.  But for right now, as they begin their rehearsals, they find themselves a bit smaller in number than they would like to be. 

If you play the French Horn and are interested in playing in this wonderful group, please contact Dr. Bruce Atwell at UW-Oshkosh at this link.  He can provide the best information.  And mark your calendars for Tuesday November 27 at 7 PM in the Music Hall for the performance of the UW Oshkosh Horn Choir.  Admission is free and the music will be wonderful.
