Western Illinois Horn Festival 2017


An Invitation to the Western Illinois Horn Festival 2017 

Hornists, teachers, and enthusiasts are CORdially invited to the Western Illinois Horn Festival 2017 at Western Illinois University on April 2, 2017.  The featured Guest Hornist will be Aaron Brask—hornist with the Jacksonville Symphony and Glimmerglass Festival Orchestras.  Many Horn Society members will remember Aaron as a member of various ensembles at the recent Symposium at Ithaca College—as well as appearances as a soloist in both jazz and classical performances at the Ithaca Symposium. Mr. Brask teaches at Jacksonville University and Florida State College at Jacksonville—and he has recorded four compact disc recordings in a wide variety of musical styles:

  • J.S. Bach— featuring works for Horn and Harp
  • Music for the Holiday Season
  • The Guaraldi Sessions
  • Can I get you anything?

In addition to the standard clinics, recitals, and master classes, there will be opportunities for participants to perform with the Western Illinois Festival Horn Choir.
