Equestrian & French Horn Player
Come discover the Hunting Horn ("Trompe de Chasse" in French), a musical instrument that is part of France's historical heritage - so much so, that in 2015 the playing of this instrument was added to France's "inventory of immaterial cultural heritage" ("inventaire du patrimoine culturel immateriel"). Lorraine Tilbury, outdoor equestrian & enthusiastic hunting horn-player (also a PhD and vetinerarian), will share the history of this amazing instrument that is still used today just as it was when it was first invented in France in the late 1600s. She will be dressed in the traditional hunting attire and with horn in hand will give a performance..... and let participants play it as well!
Some trivia......did you know that if you walk near the Pont d'Iena or square between the Champs Elysees & Place de la Concorde on Tue and Thurs evenings, you might hear the captivating sound of horn-playing? These are some locations where official city permits allow the practice of the hunting horn in the heart of the city. Gee…I hope a permit will not apply to this Storytelling Evening!
Some questions addressed during the presentation:
- What inspired you to learn the French Hunting Horn?
- What is the difference between the French Hunting Horn and the French Horn?
- What is the link between the hunt and the French Horn?
- Where did it originate?
- Is it a difficult instrument to master and where can one learn to play in Paris?
The menu is at the inspiration stage but will feature a hearty menu fit for going on a hunt. As usual, it will be a complete dinner with choice of red or white wine, beer, cremant, and other beverages served. This Storytelling Evening will be chez moi. Codes sent when you RSVP.
