Horn section

Back | Home | Up | Next

In a symphony orchestra the horn section is the group of musicians who play the horn (sometimes referred to as the French horn).

In other musical groups, the horn section refers to a group of wind instruments sometimes dubbed "horns" which are arranged to provide an enhanced accompaniment to a song or musical group. Many musical genres feature horn sections, but jazz, R&B, funk, ska, soul music and gospel music are perhaps best-known for featuring such sections. Most of these horn sections feature some combination of saxophones, trumpets and trombones, with other instruments (such as clarinet or tuba) sometimes utilized.
