Huge congratulations to GVSU grad Alex Wilson for winning the one year position to fill in for Professor Stoelzel.
Alex is a former student of Professor Stoelzel, and a current student of David Hickman at Arizona State University who has been very success in performing. He is a 2nd place winner of the National Trumpet Competition in both the Undergraduate and Graduate Divisions. He was in one of the GVSU trumpet ensembles to WIN NTC. In addition to these feats, Alex won the ITG Excerpts competition and has held a job with the Shen Yun Performing Arts Orchestra.
We hope that he will have as much success in his teaching at Grand Valley!

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
