I just wanted to write a brief post to tell everyone that this year’s Horns O’ Plenty has been officially announced! If you’ve never been to a Horns O’ Plenty (HOP) event before, you are probably curious about what it is, so allow me to fill you in. HOP is an annual brass and woodwind exposition, hosted by Music & Arts. It’s a time when we bring our vendors together, they bring some of their coolest and rarest instruments, and whoever is interested gets to come try them out!
At last year’s HOP event, we had representatives from companies like Yamaha, P. Mauriat, Buffet, Andreas Eastman, and more. We had around 550 instruments on display, from Bach Stradivarius trumpets to a Miraphone tuba. This event also is a showcase for unusual instruments. Last year, our Yamaha rep brought the Yamaha rotary valve piccolo trumpet that isn’t carried in any stores.
This event is designed to be the perfect place to get an upgraded instrument. Last year, over 150 of our rental families decided to take advantage of the awesome pricing and financing options offered at the event and upgrade their instruments. The prices are the best that we offer all year; even better than Christmas. Pro players will often come from the surrounding area and hang out to play all of the different horns. It’s a really enjoyable experience for players, regardless of age.
Here are some more details about the event:
Where: it will be at Trinity Christian School in Fairfax.
When: May 11th 10:00am until 3:00pm.

See you at HOP,
