Check it Out: National Trumpet Competition, 14-17 March

Posted by glennled on March 12, 2013

Doc Severinson with the Stiletto Brass Quintet

If you’re attending in the 22nd Annual National Trumpet Competition this week, you’re probably already in Arlington, Virginia where it begins this Thursday on the campus of George Mason University. If not, like me, then you might want to check it out at http://www.nationaltrumpetcomp.org/.

The competition is comprised of six divisions: junior, high school, undergraduate, graduate,  jazz, and ensemble. In the junior division, there are six competitors; high school, 33; undergraduate, 41; graduate, 36; jazz, 12; and ensemble, 30. Two ensembles are from Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Washington.

The U.S. Navy Band opens the event with a concert, also featuring Tromba Mundi and others, on Thursday, and the Stiletto Brass Quintet (five women, including Amy Gilreath and Cathy Leach on trumpet) plays a two-hour concert featuring Doc Severinson on Friday. That evening, Tom Harrell and his Jazz Quintet appear in concert at Harris Hall, free admission.

Trumpeters conducting clinics and master classes include Charles Lazarus, Vince DiMartino, Joey Tartell, Chris Moore, and Etienne Charles.
