Article by: College Relations Staff

The horn has a vast history spanning back to the earliest humans, appearing among all of the world’s cultures in one form or another as a symbol, a sound producer, a utilitarian device and a musical instrument. As technology and human culture have evolved, so too has the horn.

Watch the second episode of the series, “The Story of the Horn,” a collaboration between Del Mar College Professor of Humanities Karl Kemm and College Relations staff members Michael Bratten, Communications Specialist, Gerard Munoz, Media Production Manager, and Robert Perez, Jr., Media Production Coordinator.
