Our History

The Twin Cities Horn Club (TCHC) was founded in 1963 by Minneapolis businessman, Bill Lind. 

In those early years, members included musicians from the Minneapolis Symphony (now Minnesota Orchestra), Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and freelancers, including Bob Elworthy, Bruce Rardin, Frank Winsor, Eugene Wade, Dave Kamminga, Bill Melby, Paul Binstock, Elaine Davis, Marv McCoy, Karen McCoy, Curt Blake, Leslie Blake and Chuck Kavalovski. In the 1980’s Charles McDonald expanded the membership to include more musicians from community ensembles. Frequent guests included Chris Leuba and John Barrows, with Barry Tuckwell, Phil Myers and Frøydis Ree Wekre stopping by occasionally.  (Photo: Minneapolis Symphony all-Geyer section (l-r):  Rob Wirth, Chris Leuba, Paul Binstock, Bob Elworthy, Bruce Rardin)

Today, the TCHC has almost 400 member musicians, from high school students to professionals, and a vast printed music library of over 450 titles!
