It turns out that the Livonia Symphony has an agreement with Livonia Public Access Television that allows them to put concert video online. Here’s the video from my concert with them on March 15, 2014. I enter at 13:00, and perform Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto in Eb, then Leroy Anderson’s Trumpeter’s Lullaby, and finally team up with LSO Principal Robert Hawkins on Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Trumpets and Orchestra.
I am excited to announce that I’m going to be the featured soloist on the upcoming Livonia Symphony Orchestra Chamber Classics concert, March 15th 2014 at 4:00pm.
I’ll be performing the Trumpet Concerto by Josef Haydn, as well as the Concerto for Two Trumpets by Antonio Vivaldi (teaming up with LSO Principal Trumpeter Robert Hawkins).
I recently came across a wonderful blog post written by composer and percussionist Ivan Trevino. Titled “Music and Sandwiches,” the post talks about Trevino’s experiences transitioning from music student to music professional.
Imagine a busy hospital emergency room. An ambulance roars up, and paramedics quickly unload a patient, clearly in distress. A doctor runs up, takes a quick look, and says:
“I see you’ve been stung by a bee!”
“Yes, but..” the patient responds, weakly.
“Well, let’s get some ointment on that and see if we can get you feeling better.”
At this point one of the paramedics speaks up:
“Doctor, what about the stab wounds?”
