The Horn Choir led by Dr. Bruce Atwell, Professor of Music at UW-Oshkosh, will perform on Tuesday April 5 in the Music Hall on the campus.  In this concert, the choir will perform works by another famous French horn choir, the London Horn Sound.  This link is a YouTube clip of their recording of Tico-Tico.  What a great sound!
