This event is a special Holiday treat for performers and listeners alike. The Horns A Plenty Christmas event is part rehearsal, part concert, part master class, and all fun.
The event is open to all French Horn players regardless of ability. You can show up and register, get a Horns A Plenty T-Shirt to wear during the concert, and the book of music to play. All of the proceeds go to horn scholarships. This year, Horns A Plenty Christmas events have happened in South Milwaukee and Kansas City, and will happen in Appleton on Saturday December 20. This year the event returns to the Fox Valley Lutheran High School on Appleton's north side.
This year's special guest is Sarah Schmalenberger. She teaches Horn at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis. She will lead the master class at 11:30. All performers are invited to attend the master class. The concert rehearsal for performers is set for 1 PM.
For non-players, the concert is free and enjoyable, will take about an hour (no intermission), and will begin at 2PM. If you enjoy the music and want to contribute to the scholarship fund, there will be an opportunity to do so. And all contributions go directly to the fund.
For more information, you can see the Horns A Plenty web site or the Facebook page.
Take some time out of your schedule to enjoy this performance. It is well worth the effort. And I love the Cherry Tree Carol!
