Happy May Day!
The first of May is a celebration in many countries. In the small Colorado town I grew up in, the event called for anonymously leaving a basket of flowers of the neighbor’s porch. This newsletter is dedicated to celebrating amateurs and their many activities with the horn worldwide. You will find a bouquet of information for everyone!
Read about the 40th anniversary celebration of the Association Français du Cor by Matthew Arnaud and learn how this group promotes the art, craft and fun of horn playing.
Dance into May (Tanz in den Mai) with the article on the Rainbow Orchestra of Cologne, by Sherry Wegner.
The opening week of May is sometimes referred to as ‘Golden Week’ in Japan, due to the many holidays that fall during this time. Nobuaki Fukukawa introduces us to an amateur ensemble, the Kumamoto Horn Ensemble, from the region of Japan most recently devastated by earthquakes.
Koreans have the day off for Labor Day on May 1, and Young-Yul Kim has brought us helpful tips on pedagogy of the horn.
I hope to see everyone in Ithaca on June 13th for the 48th International Horn Symposium- keep in mind that the deadline for registration and housing is May 18th! This will be yet another week of fantastic performances and presentations.
Our 48th Symposium is in ITHACA, NY!
