January Masterclass: Michael Gast, Principal Horn, The Minnesota Orchestra


Jan 29 2022


12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Our Distinguished Artist is Michael Gast, Principal Horn of the Gramophone Orchestra of the Year, The Minnesota Orchestra. Mike is no stranger to Horns United having taught masterclasses for the organization 17 years before it was officially formed! This will be his 22nd masterclass for HU. Possessing one of the most commanding sounds on stage today, Gast has become known for his electrifyingly wide dynamic range and ease of phrasing. Gast is also a teacher that can convey this to a student as well as he can demonstrate it. He has been known to liken horn playing to a call to the clergy. If that’s true, then one could imagine that Mike is in line to become the next pope. Come and see what Michael Gast can do for you.
