The quartet of distinguished hornists have developed a cult following among French horn players and brass musicians. The Four Hornsmen have been featured artists at many universities and regional horn workshops and gave multiple performances at the 2013 International Horn Symposium. Their repertoire ranges from classical to contemporary, including jazz and Broadway, and their concerts are always infused with humor.
The Four Hornsmen will remain in Conway until Monday, Sept. 8 to work with UCA brass students in classes and lessons. Their stop at UCA is part of a fall tour, taking the group through Texas, Arkansas, Illinois and Kansas. UCA's Student Government Association is funding the event.
