Montreal Horn Day, January 28 and 29, 2017

Dear Canadian horn players!

We will be having our 7th Montréal Horn Days on January 28th and 29th, 2017. This year, the Virtuoso Horn Duo will be our guests (Kerry Turner and Kristina Mascher-Turner,  both members of the last edition of the American Horn Quartet). All activities will take place at the Université de Montréal Faculty of Music – Salle Claude-Champagne.

Each year, we have masterclasses, rehearsals, concerts, group warm ups, exhibitors and much more for everyone to enjoy. We put together different horn ensembles for the concert, everything is being rehearsed only on these two days. In order to form up ensembles, I would like to know if you will be coming before Dec. 16th.

20$ for the whole weekend of activities.

This year, there will also be a competition for students, prizes being summer academies of Banff, Domaine Forget and Orford Arts Center. Students will need to register before Dec. 16th, I can provide all the details if some of your students are interested. 

Amateurs are also welcome, there will be a special group, with a rehearsal on the evening of Friday the 27th.

Please forward this message to all horn players you know!

À très bientôt!


Tom Swartman, the teacher and soloist from the Peter Cornelius Konservatorium in Mainz, Germany, will be holding an ensemble reading session at the University of BC this Saturday, Sept. 26, in room 113. All are welcome to attend.
