HORNAMENTS is the event of the season for Hornists! This year's event will take place on Saturday, December 6, in Little Rock. HORNAMENTS is a no-pressure, fun opportunity for horn players of all ages to get together and share some Christmas spirit with each other and with others as we rehearse and perform holiday tunes.
Hornaments was an event started in the 1990s by Caroline Kinsey, formerly the principal hornist of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and IHS Arkansas Area Rep. (She is now a member of the Memphis Symphony). Since assuming those duties in 2001, Brent Shires has endeavored to continue the tradition each year. Hornaments is made possible with the assistance and support of the University of Central Arkansas Horn Club, the University of Arkansas - Little Rock Music Department, the International Horn Society, and Park Plaza Mall.

9:00-9:30am - Arrival, registration, donuts and individual warm-up
(UALR Band Room, Fine Arts Center)
There is no cost to participate in HORNAMENTS, but lunch money is needed. Dress should be nice, casual, and most certainly as festive as you dare! Red and green are the operative colors. Animated Santa hats, electric lights, and all manner of crazy (but legal) holiday decorations are encouraged. Deck the horns, too!
Please bring a music stand. Music will be provided. For those being dropped off in the morning, rides can be arranged between locations.
HORNAMENTS is an event sponsored by the Arkansas Horn Club, a local arm of the International Horn Society.
