KALAMAZOO—Horn Day, an annual festival at Western Michigan University open to anyone who is interested in learning more about the horn, will take place beginning at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, concluding with a final concert at 6:30 p.m. in the Dalton Center Recital Hall. All Horn Day events take place in the Dalton Center.

The fun-filled event offers an entire day of horn activities, including a master class and recital by guest artist John Ericson, horn professor at Arizona State University and co-founder of the online magazine "Horn Matters."

The festival also includes a solo competition for middle and high school participants, a recital by the WMU Horn Choir and WMU student soloists, and a chance for all participants to play in chamber ensembles and the Mass Horn Choir, which rehearses during the day and performs in the final concert.
