Bibliography French Horn

Virtuoso Bernhard Scully is the professor of horn at the University of Illinois, Champagne-Urbana.  He is a passionate teacher, and has been on the faculty of the Music Academy of the West, the Eastman School of Music, the Kendall Betts Horn Camp, the Madeline Island Music Camp with the Prairie Winds Quintet, and the Raphael Mendez Brass Institute.

Bernhard has held the position of principal horn with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra where he was featured as a soloist on many occasions.  Prior to the SPCO he was the horn player of the Canadian Brass, performing on numerous recordings and touring the world.  He has been fortunate to return and play with the quintet on numerous occasions since his departure. He is in demand as a soloist, chamber musician, orchestral player (including orchestras such as the Chicago Symphony), and is a frequent guest artist at workshops, conventions, and clinics across the United States.  He has recorded the “G. Schirmer Horn Library”, which includes much of the standard repertoire for horn and piano.

Bernhard has numerous awards to his credit including being the first horn player to win the prestigious McKnight Music Fellowship.  In 2010 the University of Wisconsin-Madison awarded him the Distinguished Alumni Award for excellence in artistry.

He currently resides in Champaign, Illinois with his wife, Sarah, and their three daughters.

As part of an exclusive agreement between the Conn-Selmer Corporation and Canadian Brass, Bernhard performs on a 24-karat gold-plated Conn 11D horn. He is a recording artist for the Toronto-based independent label, Opening Day Entertainment Group [Odeg].
