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.

from Darryl Poulsen...."UWA Publishing has just released a new publication of my English translation of the first edition of the Méthode de Premier et de Second Cor by H. Domnich, Paris, 1807. This first edition is notable for the important Notice Historique and Réflexions Prélimninaires which preface the treatise. It is in effect the first known written account of the historical development and codification of playing technique of the Classical natural horn (hand-horn). This publication is the first and only English translation of this seminal work. As such, I hope that it might be of interest "

"Hi all,

On behalf of the Adelaide Horn Jam, I'm writing to forward our information flyer for Adelaide Horn Days 2020, co-hosted by the Adelaide Horn Jam and Elder Conservatorium, University of Adelaide. This event is a weekend festival (Sunday - Monday due to the Queen's Birthday) celebrating all things horn with guest artists and Elder Conservatorium alumni Andrew Bain of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Lauren Manuel of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra alongside faculty from the Elder Conservatorium and Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. We'll be catering to horn players of all ages and abilities, and have programmed a variety of playing sessions for horn players, a series of public sessions targeted at a broader demographic of brass/wind players and teachers, as well as two public recitals featuring our faculty - so we'd love to welcome you all to join us for what promises to be a very exciting and busy couple of days! Bookings are now available online through the following link: http://www.trybooking.com/BHPLA

For local and interstate tertiary students and freelance artists, the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra will be hosting a horn casual audition on the Tuesday 9th June for those who may be interested in applying for this externally to the event.

Please feel free to forward this information and the attached flyer to anyone you think might be interested, and please don't hesitate to be in touch with myself or our secretary David Kettler at ahj.secretary@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Looking forward to seeing lots of old friends and new faces!
