We're pleased to be featuring the work of many new freelance writers on our website, and in coming weeks we'd like to help you get to know some of them better. Today, meet Gwendolyn Hoberg of Moorhead, Minnesota.

Gwen has played french horn in ensembles throughout Minnesota, including Duluth, Aurora, Thief River Falls, Mankato, Minneapolis, St. Cloud, Bloomington, and Moorhead. She enjoys arranging classical and pop music for horn and brass ensembles ("Stairway to Heaven" for horn quartet is a favorite). A Bismarck native, Gwen is now developing an editing and writing business in Moorhead. Her upcoming projects include publication of The Walk Across North Dakota and planning the Great Minnesota Arts Hike.

Read Gwen's writing on Classical MPR:

How is practicing an instrument like working out?

The flutist from Florida, and other true tales of commuting to play in the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra

Does classical music help you "think for the future"?
