The Kansas City Horn Club hosted its first virtual concert earlier this month as a replacement for the live concert it had planned this spring.

The horn club brought 24 French horn players from five states into one virtual space while musicians performed the world premiere of “Ad Astra per Aspera” from their own living rooms. The musicians recorded themselves and sent their recordings to the composer, Gavin Lendt, who pieced everything together.
