Our Philosophy


The club was formed in Saginaw, Michigan in the spring of 2001. It was started as a recreational group for horn players to experience horn ensemble playing in a non-threatening, no-pressure environment. Our aim is to have fun; to learn horn repertoire; to keep our chops in shape; to develop our listening skills; and to share information on horns and horn playing. To gain membership in this group is to simply show up at rehearsal time with your horn. See our Meeting page. [The above photo was taken of our quartet at a gig site in 2006.
