TUA’s horn students participated in the International Horn Festival Maastricht 2017
Participants: Seven students of Instrument Music (Undergraduate, Graduate and Practical Music Courses)
Locations: Maastricht, the Netherlands
Period: April 19-May 1, 2017
Seven students of Instrument Music from Tokyo University of the Arts (TUA) traveled to Maastricht, the Netherlands, to participate in the Horn Week: International Horn Festival. They actively engaged in practicing the basic skills of horn playing and communicating with other participating students from different parts of the world that resulted in a memorable ensemble performance.
During the festival, many programs were offered including lessons by teachers from music schools in Germany, Poland, and the Netherlands, a recital by the lead hornist of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as lectures on the history of the Conservatorium Maastricht Orchestra and on contemporary performing styles of the horn. These programs gave the students the opportunities to develop themselves by learning historical backgrounds of the horn in the Netherlands and the concepts of musical instruments in Europe.
