Hornarama has been operating in Australia since the beginning of 1996. It has not only provided a place to purchase all those horn related things that we just can't do without, but has provided a central point for information about horn related matters.

Within this site you will find not only sheet music, CDs and accessories but also information on horns for sale, horn related performances, listing of positions vacant and playing opportunities.

We are thrilled announce the Young Mannheim Symphonists 2019 Sydney Winter School. This exciting program is designed to give school students and emerging musicians the opportunity to discover for themselves the magic of approaching music with appropriate performance style. As the students are led through great musical masterpieces, and exposed to the knowledge and perception of experienced professional musicians, they are inspired by how the music comes to life, and empowered to begin making informed musical decisions on their own.

At the 2019 Winter School, the Young Mannheim Symphonists, directed by Rachael Beesley and Nicole van Bruggen, will plunge into masterpieces by the Viennese masters as well as introducing some lesser known works and composers from the late 18th century. The Young Mannheim Symphonists tutors are members of the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra - professional musicians who specialise in historically-informed performance on period instruments. Their knowledge of musical styles, articulations, and embellishments comes from years of experience performing; reading treatises and studying scores; experimenting with instruments and interpretations; and sharing with their peers and their students. They are passionate about understanding our musical heritage in the context in which it was created, and they are even more passionate about inspiring and enlightening others.

Watch out....UK based Horn Scam....

Update 24 July 2018
HornsAplenty (Alan Wiltshire) - were you a customer?

We are trying to reach all those people who were customers of HornsAplenty (proprietor Alan Wiltshire) - specifically people who sent horns to be sold and for which they did not receive payment, possibly going back over several years. (If you have pictures and any other identifying details like serial numbers that would be very helpful.) We are urging you to get in touch so that we have as complete a picture as possible. There is an ongoing police investigation into this business and its proprietor and we are keen the investigation should have access to all the facts.

Please contact Luke@woodheadhorns.co.uk
