The UND Trumpet Studio's 8th Annual Trumpet Volunscary a huge success

The 8th annual Trumpet Volunscary presentation was massively successful, with great music, interesting guest artists, and audience appeal. The guest trumpet artists in residence this year were Jason Carder (University of Arizona, trumpeter for YANNI) and Bianne Border (Arizona State University, yoga instructor). Their masterclasses were outstanding, and totally transformative for my studio. Brianne held a masterclass on "Yoga for Musicians" and was attended by most of the instrumental music majors here at UND. Jason presented two masterclasses on "Improvisation for Classical Musicians" and "Playing Correctly in the Upper Register." Both guest artists taught individual private lessons to my students, most of which were attended by other trumpet students. The studio recital was especially successful, and was attended by 110 audience members and a multitude of live attendeed via Livestream from Sweden, Brazil, China, Canada, Michigan, California, Iowa, North Carolina, and Minnesota. The program contained pieces for trumpet ensemble, small ensemble, solos, guest artist performances, and UND faculty participation. We premiered our piece, Counter Counterpoint by Dean McNeill, commissioned by the UND Trumpet Studio for the 2017 National Trumpet Competition.
