6th Annual Trumpet Recital Features 8 Students

"The Chicken Dance"

“The Chicken Dance”

There is no friendlier audience!

Eight private trumpet students of mine performed for their parents, relatives and friends on 5 June at the Sixth Annual Trumpet Recital held in my home–four in the morning session and four in the afternoon. They ranged from beginning band members to a high school senior who recently played in Inglemoor High School’s Wind Ensemble in Carnegie Hall in New York! (See my post of 29 April 2015).

In the afternoon session, three of us (including me) played “Funeral March,” a bugle call in three-part harmony.

The final performance of the recital was billed on the program as “Theme from ‘Trumpet Concerto in E-Flat Major'” by Joseph Haydn. It was a spoof, however. The trumpeter, a high school junior, appeared from the basement dressed in a chicken suit and played “The Chicken Dance.” Refreshments followed.

Recitals are fun, and weekly lessons pay off in many ways for every student and family.
