A Recital of Music for Young Horn Players
Del Mar College Professor Karl Kemm will perform several works intended for young French horn players. Music instructors rarely know about these quality works because the more impressive compositions of Strauss and Mozart steal our attention. Don’t miss a rare opportunity to see beginning and intermediate level works performed alongside visual media explaining the strengths and obstacles of each work. Attendees may cast their vote for the musical works they liked best. Frank Volpi will accompany on piano while retired junior high school music instructor Wanda Avila accompanies on horn.
