Horns A Plenty Christmas is an organization that offers horn players young and old the opportunity to come together and perform Christmas music for the general public. Guest artists are featured as a way to encourage the education and growth of participants, as well as to add their talent to the performance.
Horns A Plenty Christmas raises funds through the sale of specially-branded merchandise, t-shirts, Christmas music for horn, and registration fees. Donations are welcome and will directly fund scholarships to aspiring horn players in order to further their education in music.
