The SHSU Horn Studio will perform pieces from the Baroque era through the 20th century during a recital on Tuesday (March 23) at 7:30 pm in the Recital Hall.

“One of the featured performances will be the ‘Concerto for Four Horns’ by Robert Schumann (a 19th century composer),” said Peggy DeMers, associate professor of horn. “The students performing are senior John Wes Stuart, sophmore Avery Harrison, freshman LeAnn Heckmann and Justin Craig.”

The student recital will be followed by a performance by the Sam Houston Horn Choir at 8:30 p.m. in the Recital Hall.

The performance will include works that have been transcribed for four to eight horns, including 20th century composer Eric Ewason’s “The Grand Canyon Suite” and traditional Italian songs such as “O’ sole mio,” as well as works by Bruckner and Mozart.

The group consists of horn players in the School of Music and students from other majors that love playing the horn, according to DeMers.
