Friday was a pretty day, and by mid afternoon there was a German horn ensemble playing in the wilds of campus. Can’t say I’ve seen this on campus before. Drum brigades and the like, yes, but not a French Horn ensemble sporting Alpine hats. It was purely delightful. Students parked themselves nearby for their studies. Employees came out of their offices to soak up some D vitamin sun and music. But it was the hats that got me. You have to love a band with a sense of humor. There are some major advantages to working on a collage campus, and a German horn band with Alpine hats is one of them. UPDATE: Thanks to Susan Henthorn’s keen eye, our French Horn ensemble is actually the Tuba-Euphonium Ensemble conducted by Dr. Skip Gray in UK’s School of Music. Thanks, Susan!
