This just in! Daniel Grabois is the newly-named Assistant Professor of Horn at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Grabois will be taking over the horn studio of Douglas Hill, who is retiring at the end of the Spring 2011 semester after over forty years of teaching and performing (thirty-seven of which were at UW-Madison). As a former student of Doug Hill and a Wisconsin alumnus, I have a vested interest in the future of the UW-Madison Horn Studio, and hope to see it continue to thrive. Professor Grabois has outstanding performing and teaching credentials, and I’m sure he will do an excellent job. From what Doug (now Professor of Horn, Emeritus) has told me, he plans to continue composing, performing, writing, and presenting clinics, but is also looking forward to spending some time exploring other pursuits. Congratulations and good luck to both Professor Hill and Professor Grabois!
