The Los Angeles Horn Club, founded in the 1950s, kept players in shape during weeks-off from motion picture recording. They held weekly meetings and annual dinner parties. The horn players would get together with their wives, see a concert, and watch a comedic act by the players of the club entitled Professor Schmutzig. The LA Horn Club went on to record two albums, one in 1959 and one in 1970. Most of the music written for the Club was written by well-known film and classical composers.

Honoring the history of the horn in Hollywood, a Los Angeles Horn Club Concert will be recreated at one of the most historic theaters in film: the Los Angeles Theatre. 

The Los Angeles Theatre, constructed in the early 1930's, is a 2,000 seat movie palace located in the historic Broadway Theater District in Downtown Los Angeles. The theater is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and has been featured in many motion pictures and television series including New York, New York (1977), Man on the Moon (1999),  Charlie's Angels (2000), Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003), and the AMC series Mad Men.
