“The sound of the horn is the soul of the orchestra”
— Robert Schumann
Find out how the horn evolved through time, around the world, and how it ended up as the soul of the orchestra! The Symphony presents its horns from pre-history to the modern day orchestra horn. Instruments will include sea shells, animal horns, and early man-made wood and metal instruments. We’ll journey from the Baroque era, to Classical, Romantic, and through 20th and 21st century compositions, with slight detours to Manhattan, Hollywood, and Chicago!
Join us one hour before the performance for a pre-concert reception with drinks and hors d'oeuvres from our season sponsors.
