UW Horn Choir to Perform Annual Holiday Concert at Chazen Museum of Art

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Madison, Wisconsin, November 22, 2010—The UW Horn Choir will perform its annual holiday concert at the Chazen Museum of Art on December 4, 2010, at 1 p.m. The horn choir has been under the direction of Douglas Hill since 1974, and this year is Professor Hill’s final concert as he will retire from full-time teaching in 2011. Audiences of all ages enjoy this festive event.

This year’s ensemble, made up of 15 music majors from around the country as well as a guest hornist from Germany, will perform a retrospective concert of all-time favorites. The program will consist of important musical works by UW colleagues past and present, arrangements by past students, special requests by present students, a wonderful composition featured at the first Chazen horn choir concert, some arrangements of holiday favorites, and an original octet composed by Hill entitled “Gratitude.” The UW horn choir has performed at the Chazen for 35 years, and Professor Hill has many wonderful memories of these concerts and his years with the UW School of Music.

A reception follows the performance.
