This past weekend five students from the UA horn studio competed in The International Horn Competition of America. This is the largest and most prestigious competition of its kind in the Americas, and one of the most important in the world. Matthew Meadows, a first-year graduate student, won second prize in the university division of the IHCA. 115 competitors began in this division representing countries throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America. This is an extremely prestigious honor for Matt, as he has distinguished himself as one of the finest players in this category worldwide.
