Hi, Barb --

Yes, we did meet several years ago. The Elkhart Municipal Band is now being directed by Dave Swihart (he was our timpanist). Paul Schulz died of cancer a couple of years ago.

Wasn't it your dad's arrangement of the R. Strauss Concerto No. 1 that I played with the band? Do you know whatever happened to the score and parts for that? I'd love to play it again!

Hi Deb,

Yes, he arranged that for me when I was in high school. Mom gave me the music, so if you want to borrow it just let me know.

Yes, I had heard about Paul Schulz. That was very sad. He was a family friend.

Thanks! I just played an arrangement my husband made of part of the Franz Strauss "Fantasie for Horn" this past April. So it may be a while before it's my turn again. He's hoping to complete the piece soon and get it published. We had gotten permission several years ago from Marvin Howe, and his daughter, who'd begun to run the publisher by that time.

If I can find the names of the composers of the "Holiday for Horns" and the "French Horn Frappe" in the band library, I'll send them along. They really are cute, appealing pieces for park band performances. There really isn't much for horn or multiple horns and band that is accessible for amateur/student players and for general audiences.

I hope some composers/arrangers will "take note"!
