Saranac Horn Retreat


Saranac Horn Retreat is a haven for horn players to gather in a non-competitive setting to play together and grow as musicians, enjoying camaraderie in a beautiful environment.


We regret to inform you that due to uncertainties caused by the Covid-19 Coronavirus, we will be postponing the Saranac Horn Retreat until the Summer of 2022. We look forward to reconnecting with you then!

Saranac Horn Retreat was created for adult horn players (18 years or older) wanting to escape to the Adirondacks to revive their spirits playing horn ensemble, meet other hornists, and relax in the natural beauty of the region. Whether you play in your community orchestra, are a professional player looking for a vacation that allows you to play your horn, or a college student keeping their chops in shape over the summer, we welcome you to join us. Help us create new traditions and memories.

Ilze Brink-Button, Director
