Etna International Horn Festival was created by IHS Online Manager
Horn players from Italy and abroad (Mexico and Korea) met for an International Horn Festival on the Etna volcano in August 2016. The festival opened with the Schumann Konzertstück. The soloists were the teachers for the festival: Guglielmo Pellarin (first Horn Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale Santa Cecilia in Rome), Loris Antiga (first/third horn at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice), Roberto Miele (first horn at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan) and me (third horn at the Theatre of Catania opera and professor at the Conservatory of Catania).

The teachers performed other concerts accompanied by a string quartet. The young participants in the festival had lessons during the day with all the teachers and played every evening with the ensemble to prepare the final concert, which was held at the crater of our beloved volcano in a beautiful tourist area. Seeing 40 horns together near the volcano was amazing.
