JSU Trumpet Ensemble to Perform First Public Concert

03/05/2012

On Wednesday, March 7 trumpets will sound as the JSU trumpet ensemble has its first public concert at 7:30 p.m. at the Performance Center of Mason Hall.
 
David Bailey said the trumpet studio at JSU is full of talent and this concert allows everyone else to see it. The majority of the 22-member ensemble are Marching Southerners, but some are not registered for any class and have devoted time to the ensemble because of their love of the instrument. “The trumpet is probably the most diverse instrument in the brass family,” he said. “This concert will give our trumpet studio a chance to present a few different sides of the instrument and to perform together in a small ensemble where everyone is required to play to their maximum potential.”
 
Bailey said the ensemble will perform a diversified selection of music, such as such as Russian Christmas Music by Alfred Reed,Sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss, Within Sacred Walls by Erik Morales, group performances by the Chamber Winds, Wind Ensemble, and Symphonic band trumpet sections.
 
 “There is a large amount of music that is written strictly for trumpet ensemble. I wanted our students here to have the opportunity to explore that music and have an ensemble to participate in that could deal specifically with the issues that our instrument presents,” Bailey said.
 
The JSU Trumpet Ensemble concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Performance Center of Mason Hall. There is no cost.
