Thomas Bacon - Horn

Repertoire with Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Brass Ensemble or Jazz Band


     For something unusual, try Dragons in the Sky or Pillars of Fire by Mark Schultz, or Pentangle by Peter Schickele, all written for Mr. Bacon.     
     Haydn's Concerto for Two Horns could feature him with your principal hornist or with The Golden Horn.      
     A big hit with all ages is Aesop's Fables narrated by Mr. Bacon. Program it on your subscription series and on your "Student Concert" series.
