Grand Valley State University

International Trumpet Seminar 2014

July 20th-27th 2014

Featuring guest artists from around the world, the Grand Valley State University International Trumpet Seminar is looking forward to its Tenth year!

On a daily basis, students attend masterclasses from our guest and faculty, as well as attend group lessons, warmup classes, and techniques classes. Each evening closes with a wonderful faculty recital.


Students will again be able to choose a specialty class and study with the best on the instrument in a specific area:

-Practice jazz, improve and playin’ all of the high notes with Rex Richardson and Andrea Tofanelli. One or two students will be picked to solo with Rex on the big band concert!

-Orchestra repertoire with Hunter Eberly, Slawek Cichor, and Karl Marx. There will be two levels of study: an intro to the orchestra, teaching beginning repertoire; and a class for advanced players. Both classes will have an informal mock orchestra competition.

-Solo literature with Steph Burns, Jose Chafer, Jean Libs, and Richard Stoelzel. Solo class will focus on modern and newly composed music and will offer students a chance to work with some of the instruments most experienced teachers and performers.
