The International Trumpet Guild conference in late May looks to be a great one!! This one is being organized by a colleage, Eric Berlin, who has developed a great reputation as a teacher and performer. He has been a finalist for more major orchestral jobs than I can count. He has out done himself for this conference featuring great artists such as Chris Martin, newly tenured Principal Trumpet of the Chicago Symphony; Paul Merkelo Principal of Montreal; Charlie Schlueter, retired Principal of Boston; Billy Hunter Principal of the Met Opera Orchestra; Tom Rolfs, Principal of Boston, Manny Laureno, Principal of Minnesota; Doc Severinson, etc... Should be a great time.
