Posted on

Guest artists from around the world will provide education for developing musicians at the Grand Valley State University International Trumpet Seminar, now in its sixth year under the direction of Richard Stoelzel, associate professor of trumpet.

Held July 17-24 in the Performing Arts Center, on the Allendale Campus, students will learn trumpet techniques and styles ranging from jazz and improv to orchestra repertoire and solo literature during clinics, group lessons and master classes.

During the intense week of learning, students will also have the opportunity to participate in trumpet ensembles and solo competition. Each evening closes with a faculty recital, and the seminar culminates in a final concert showcasing pieces the students have worked on all week. All concerts and recitals are open to the public.
