The mission of the International Horn Society's website (hornsociety.org) is to be the principal source of information about the horn and the activities of the IHS, and to promote horn playing, fellowship, and communication betweens hornists worldwide.

To this end, hornsociety.org

  • provides information concerning future and past international, regional, and area workshops/symposia, events, and competitions.
  • supports research concerning the history, literature, and pedagogy of the horn in a variety of ways.
  • allows IHS members access to job listings, special articles, areas of interest to a wide range of horn players and teachers, horn music, and the ability to advertise instruments and equipment for sale.
  • Encourages horn players to join the International Horn Society.

The International Horn Society recommends that HORN be recognized as the correct name for our instrument in the English language. [From the Minutes of the First General Meeting, June 15, 1971, Tallahassee, Florida USA]
