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).
Back on February 11, 2013, I was honored to perform Robert Bradshaw’s Concerto for Trumpet and Wind Ensemble with the Wayne State University Wind Symphony. I’m happy to report that a video recording of the performance is now available online!!
The first and second movements are combined here:
And the last movement is here:
I have a couple of performances coming up in the very near future that I feel merit extra attention here on my website.
The first will take place on Saturday, January 19th, at The Whiting in Flint, MI. Notable about this performance is the programming of Anton Bruckner’s Symphony No. 7. In my 17 years with the Flint Symphony, this is the first time the orchestra has performed any Bruckner work, and it’s also the first time I’ve ever performed a Bruckner Symphony as Principal.
Bruckner makes heavy use of trumpets, similarly to Mahler, so this should be lots of fun!
The second notable performance will take place on Monday, February 11, in the Music Box at the Max Fischer Music Center (Orchestra Hall) in Detroit.
In this concert, I’ll be performing Robert Bradshaw’s Concerto for Trumpet with the Wayne State University Wind Symphony. I have performed several of Robert’s works over the years, and his Sonata was the subject of my doctoral document at MSU. I’m very excited to be able to bring his Concerto to a new audience!
