Nederlands Hoornisten Genootschap

In 2022, the Dutch Horn Society (“Nederlands Hoornisten Genootschap”) celebrate their 40 year anniversary! The 25 and 30 year anniversaries were celebrated with horn festivals in the “Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ” in Amsterdam. This time we have chosen for the beautiful Philharmonie in Haarlem. We have compiled a divers program, with interesting activities for all hornplayers.

The HOORN! festival opens on Friday May 27, with a concert by VIENNA HORNS. On May 28 there are workshops for all hornplayers, masterclasses for horn students, and play-along ensembles for amateur hornplayers. Next to that there is a lunchtime concert, and afternoon concert, and a festive evening concert. All day long there is a music market with more than 15 exhibitors. You can read the complete program for Saturday May 28 below.

Tickets for the concerts can be booked on the web site of the Philharmonie. Members of the Dutch Horn Society get a nice discount on the ticket price. Check your mailbox for information about the members-only discount code!
