New Titles in Online Music Sales
Two new items have been added to the IHS Online Music Sales catalog:
“Meditation” from Thaïs, by Jules Massenet, arranged for horn and piano by James Boldin
Originally for solo violin with orchestra, the beautiful melody in this work transfers well to the horn. The key has been altered, and some minor editing has been done to make the solo part more "horn-friendly." This arrangement would make an excellent encore piece for recitals.
"Waltz of the Flowers" from The Nutcracker, by Pytor Tchaikovsky, arranged for horn quartet by Sy Brandon
Waltz of the Flowers is a dance from Tchaikovsky's beloved ballet "The Nutcracker". This charming arrangment makes a great addition to any horn quartet's Christmas repertoire!
"The Sands" Horn Quintet in OMS
The Sands, a horn quintet by Sean Miller is now available in the IHS Online Music Sales.
The composer's description: "The sun sets over Arabia and the party begins. The Sands paints a glimpse of the Middle East from a fiery dance to a moment of relaxation and cooling off in the oasis. Then the scorching sun rises up over the dunes, and the people dance and celebrate once again."

According to the IHS bylaws, the Advisory Council (AC) is "responsible for carrying out the aims and purposes of the Society and for determining Society policy." Nine of the fifteen AC members are elected by the IHS membership; the AC elects the others. As you nominate and elect new AC members, remember that these individuals represent a broad spectrum of international horn-related activities.
Terms of the following AC members expire in July 2013: John Ericson and Geoffrey Winter are completing their second terms and are therefore ineligible for reelection this year. Peter Luff is completing his first term in office and is eligible for nomination.
