Welcome to the Northern Horn Club

formerly the Opera North Horn Club

The club was formed in 1997 by Bob Ashworth, principal horn of the Orchestra of Opera North based in Leeds, and his horn section colleagues of the time (Dougie Scarfe, Maggie Houlding & Paul Kampen) to enable horn players of all ages and abilities to assemble on a regular basis to play in large ensembles. The opportunity to play in groups of up to 16 players would otherwise be extremely rare! Members come from all walks of life, both amateur and professional sides of music, and have ranged in age from 9 to over 75. On average meetings take place every two months.

Horn players of any ability may join up for a small yearly subscription fee (OAP & student concessions) which gives, in addition to free entry to all meetings, access to our newsletter
