William C. Robinson (1919-2019)

robinson4We mourn the passing on July 2 of William (Bill) Robinson, the person who was responsible, more than anyone else, for starting the International Horn Workshops and the International Horn Society.  Bill was elected an IHS Honorary Member in 1978, and on January 21 of that year, in anticipation of the upcoming 10th annual International Horn Workshop, he was interviewed about the origins of the workshops and of the IHS.

We present here a short excerpt from that interview:

Bill's family has requested that donations be made to the IHS in his name in lieu of flowers. Donations can be made through Network for Good.
