Just a short note to report that the Midwest Horn Workshop held in Oshkosh last week was a big success. Congratulations are due to Dr. Bruce Atwell for organizing the weekend. All the reports I heard were very complementary.
I also found out that one of the premier horn quartets will be visiting the Milwaukee Area to perform Guns 'N' Rosenkavalier. The Milwaukee Opera Theater will be presenting this opera, "a rock-recital that jumps from Kate Bush to Schubert and Brahms to The Boss, confounding your expectations and celebrating that which is universal." The performances will be the weekend of March 22 to 24 at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. The Premier horn quartet will be none other than Genghis Barbie!
I mention this because on Saturday the 23rd, Genghis Barbie will travel to Appleton to join the Fox Valley Horn Club in a master class and performance. I applaud the group for encouraging young horn players during their down time between performances. Absolutely wonderful.
