Four winners will be chosen to receive an orchestral coaching session, during the IHS International Symposium, with four professional orchestral hornists chosen from workshop artists and advisory council members. Winners will also receive a one-year IHS membership

If space is still available applicants can sign up at the registration desk for the symposium. At the contest, applicants will be required to show proof of full-time enrollment as a student and to be registered for the symposium.

Applications will be accepted in the order they are received. The contest is limited to the first 40 applicants. After 40 applications are received, a waiting list will be started and “no-shows” will be replaced from the waiting list.

The International Horn Society reserves the right to cancel the final competition or withhold one or more awards if, in the opinion of the judges, conditions warrant such action.
