The theme will be “Horn and Song”.
“2013 is the centennial of Benjamin Britten’s birth, and the symposium will include performances of all of his works featuring the horn, including the “Serenade” and the U.S. premiere of “In Memoriam Dennis Brain,” for horn quartet and string orchestra. The overall theme for this symposium is “Horn and Song,” and much of the repertoire to be performed will include voices or have a vocal theme or origin. Repertoire will also include at least two premieres of music commissioned for the occasion: a unique concerto for horn and chorus and another for solo horn quartet, participant horn ensemble and soprano soloist.”Featured and special guest artists include:
