American Horns of the 20th Century

Presenter: Dr. Gary L. Reeves

This presentation will feature horns manufactured by U.S. makers during the 20th Century. Although some horns may be from major manufacturers, most of the instruments discussed will be from small, individual makers or may have been prototypes. Most of these instruments are from the holdings of the National Music Museum on the campus of the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, SD. Among these holdings are the instruments formerly on display in the Frank Holton and Company Factory Museum in Elkhorn, Wisconsin. Along with descriptions of these instruments, also included will be a PowerPoint visual display. A selected instrument or two will be present, and brief playing demonstrations of these instruments will be included. Time for questions and answers will conclude the presentation.
