The Milwaukee Youth Horn Choir provides the unique opportunity for young and talented horn players to explore the art of music making and horn playing on the UW-Milwaukee campus with the Associate Professor of Horn, Greg Flint. Participants will be placed into chamber ensembles, where they will rehearse music that is specific to the horn and perform a concert at the end of the eight week rehearsal cycle. In addition, horn players will learn about proper playing technique, tips for excellent intonation & rhythm, and general ideas about rehearsal etiquette.
There are eight rehearsals in a concert cycle that take place in the Fall & Spring semesters on Tuesday evenings from 5:15–6:15PM in Room 353 at the Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts on the UW-Milwaukee Campus. Spring 2017 rehearsals take place from February 21 to April 4, 2017.
A concert takes place following the eight week rehearsal cycle. The concert is on April 11, 2017 at 5:15PM in Room 250 of the Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts.
