Random Monday: Rose on ‘For You,’ Pure Cuteness and IHS Brisbane

  • Just like Dennis Brain? 8 seconds of pure cuteness
    From an anonymous tipster – “…just shows you that there’s some dumb luck involved with playing the horn.”
    (The baby’s exclamation before playing is simply precious!)
  • Multi-tasking military man
    “Staff Sgt. Shawn D. Cupp, a native of Monroe, Mich., the senior operations non-commissioned officer and a French horn player with the 3rd Infantry Division Band, out of Fort Stewart, Ga., works on his computer to manage operational missions for the band while deployed to Contingency Operating Base Speicher, near Tikrit, Iraq…”

  • Horn Matters at the symposium; either/or
    John tells me that among the participants in Brisbane, those that know about the Horn Matters site, like it. However, there are still a great number of people that have never, ever heard of it.

    HM is approaching its one-year anniversary mark (coming September 1st), and your readership and feedback really helps us to keep things going. I personally enjoy all the interaction both here and on the Facebook page.

    Please help us spread the word and tell your friends about this site!

  • Taking a break
    This week, John will be posting daily from the Brisbane IHS symposium. I am taking a writing break until next Monday, July 26th.
