Fall Horn Festival
November 9, 2013
The UW-Whitewater FALL HORN FESTIVAL will celebrate its 15th anniversary with something really special: GENGHIS BARBIE - "the post post-feminist feminist all-female horn experience." This innovative and energizing chamber ensemble will amaze, delight, and inspire horn players of all ages as part of the 2013 Fall Horn Festival. Performing pop music from today, and through time back to the 70's, Genghis Barbie is one of the most versatile groups on New York City's classical/pop/rock/ jazz/indie/alternative/punk/electro-acoustic music scene.
What else is New York City famous for? BROADWAY! It's the oldest north-south main thoroughfare in New York City (15 miles!) but it's most famous as the heart of New York City's theater district, and home of the "Broadway Musical."
Join us on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2013 for the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater's Fall Horn Festival as we celebrate "Broadway!" and play music spanning decades of America's favorite Broadway musicals.
This event will be held in the Greenhill Center of the Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Check-in starts at 9:30 am. The festival is for French horn players of all ages - beginners to adults (Horn teachers, band directors who would like to brush up their horn skills, and folks who yearn to play horn again are all welcome to dust off that horn and come join the fun!) Registrants will participate in both large and small horn ensembles.
New for our 15th Anniversary Festival is a special evening concert by Genghis Barbie in the beautiful Irvin L. Young Auditorium at 7:30 pm.
Your registration fee of $45 covers instruction, music, festival t-shirt, and a ticket to the Genghis Barbie concert. You may also purchase two additional $9 tickets for your family! (Regular price is $19.50)
(The Genghis Barbie concert will be fabulous, of course, but if you can't stay for the evening performance you can still participate in all the daytime activities.)
Check in and check out the Breber Music display, including new horns, music and equipment. Horns for sale at special Fall Horn Festival price!
