The 50th International Horn Symposium is fast approaching. I am planning on having a few special items for those who purchase full week registrations before July 1. The program book is now being laid out with the bios, ads and event schedules. There are close to thirty world premieres at the horn symposium this summer. Congratulations to all the artists who are contributing their time and money in commissions, travel and supporting artist coordination for the wonderful tributes to “The Golden History of the Horn." All the events and information can be seen online at IHS50.org. Please plan your lodging as the Courtyard Marriott is already sold out August 2nd thru the 4th. Vendors and on-campus housing registration will close July 1. Registration will open up at 3 p.m. on July 29 in the lobby of Sursa Hall.
A few notes about parking. Parking passes can be obtained from the website until July 1. You will only need parking passes for the weekdays unless you are staying in the dorm or leaving your car overnight in the parking structure. If you miss the purchase window they still can be obtained from parking services in the student center after you arrive. The parking structure is directly south of Sursa Hall and the Music Instruction Building. You will find that most of the activities will be in a centralized location.
If you have any questions please drop me an email and I hope to quickly reply. If anyone does not get a response from me in a few days please send another email. I will start now scheduling rehearsal spaces for the contributing artist and ensembles. The collaborating pianist will have set rooms for their rehearsals and contributing artist need to coordinate with their pianist the specifics. The room schedules can be seen online.
