Have a wonderful Holiday Season

And be sure to thank the volunteer musicians you hear during the season.  They play for the joy of playing but they do appreciate knowing that the audience enjoys it as well.

The next post will be in January.  Until then.....

A Holiday Favorite - Horns a plenty Christmas

It will be worth the trip to Appleton to the Fox Valley Lutheran High School on Saturday December 21 to attend the Horns A Plenty Christmas concert at 3:30 PM.  The horn players all over Wisconsin will attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records for largest Horn Choir performing Christmas Music. 

If you have not heard a performance of Horns A Plenty Christmas, it is worth the effort to attend.  The horn players all volunteer for the performance.  There is no admission charge, although free will offerings are accepted.  All money goes to scholarships for young horn players.

So take time out of your busy holiday schedule for some wonderful music the afternoon of the 21st.  See you there.
