Our One Horn Community

Welcome, one and all, to IHS53, the digital version of the Annual Symposium of the International Horn Society, August 9-13, 2021. This Symposium is our attempt at recreating the excitement, variety and community of an in-person IHS Symposium, via the digital event platform Socio. With over 200 submissions from 16 countries, we hope that there will be something for everyone!

On the event platform, you will find a vast list of "On Demand" recorded presentations for you to enjoy, whenever you want. These presentations cover a wide array of interests, from warm-up classes to lectures and panel discussions, to chamber music and solo performances. Along with this massive library of presentations, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, we will have live-streamed events, as well (in the "Agenda" tab in the platform), and the schedule is available for you to plan your week. Do not worry if you cannot make a live-streamed event, though--after the stream is closed after a session, the presentation will be added to the library of "On Demand" offerings.

In the menu above, you'll find the link to the registration page, and to the connection with the event on the Socio platform. We have purposely tried to keep the registration costs as low as possible, to make sure that cost was not a hinderance to enjoying this Symposium. We hope that you are able to spend the week with us, and join in celebrating Our One Horn Community!

Wishing you all of the very best!

Andrew Pelletier, President
International Horn Society
