The Holiday Horn Ensemble
is comprised of the horn section of the Hillcrest Wind Ensemble.
Inspired by the community group Hornswaggle, led by John
Lorge, they decided to come together for this holiday concert to
showcase some of the original arrangements of John Lorge who
is also principal horn with San Diego's Orchestra Nova. Born in
Oshkosh Wisconsin, he studied music at the University of
Wisconsin, Madison. Lorge has been principal horn of the San
Diego Symphony and San Diego Opera and maintains a busy
performance schedule and is frequently called upon to play horn
for other orchestras such as the LA Philharmonic, Milwaukee
Symphony and St Paul Chamber Orchestra as well as many Los
Angeles recording sessions for TV and Motion Pictures.
He has played for movies both on the big screen and for TV as
well as having recorded for several pop artists including Barry
Manilow, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Sammy Nestico,
Harry Connick Jr. and Christina Aguilerra. His composing
endeavors have been increasingly frequent, often called upon to
compose for the San Diego Symphony and chamber ensembles
across the nation.
