Here at UTM, we strive to make the music world a small and accessible place for our majors. Therefore, every year, we bring in guest artists and scholars that you can learn from, talk with, perform for, and with which to create lasting relationships.
The UTM Horn Studio also makes several trips a year to hear various professional orchestras, chamber ensembles, and soloists. Many times the members of the studio get to personally interact with these artists! It's fun AND educational! We also travel to Horn Days and other horn / brass events in the region.
This year, the horn studio is excited to welcome the following guest artists to campus:
January 19-20, 2018
Friday, the 19th - 530pm Recital / Masterclass (Making It in Music)
Saturday, the 20th - 1230pm - Fearless Performance Lecture
Jeff will also be meeting the horn studio in group and individual setting for horn specific topics!
February 21, 2018
Wednesday, the 21st - 730pm Horn Recital
Lauren will also be providing a masterclass and one-on-one time with members of the horn studio!
We are thrilled these two amazing artists will be visiting and sharing their fantastic talents with us!!
Our brass guest artists have included musicians such as (amongst many others):
Jeff Nelsen - former hornist of the Canadian Brass, Fearless Performance Guru, Professor of Horn at the Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music
