10/14/08: Application forms for the Horn Ensemble Competition and the Jazz Solo Competition are now posted at www.wiu.edu/horn under the IHS2009 Sidebar.
10/19/08: Registration is now open for the 2009 International Horn Symposium. The form and cost information are available at www.wiu.edu/horn under the IHS2009 sidebar. This information could be quite useful for teachers who are applying for funding to take ensembles (or themselves) to IHS 2009. One item we have available with Early Registration is the capability of purchasing Sodexo MEAL CARDS for the Food Court at the University Union. Some students might not want to go back to the residence halls for lunch--and prefer to eat lunch at the food court--go visit a nearby exhibit or practice --before going to an event at 1:00. So meals plans can be purchased for either breakfast, lunch, and or dinner. Also, the BANQUET Registrations must be made early. There will be a limit for the first 600 Registrants for the Symposium Banquet.
10/23/08: Exhibitor Information and Contracts are now available at the webpage: www.wiu.edu/horn
10/25/08: Competitions: Horn Ensemble, Jazz solo competition, Scholarship Competition (classical solo), and Frizelle Orchestral Excerpt Competition Information is available at www.wiu.edu/horn Under IHS 2009
