  • 1. Immersion in Music and the Trumpet by Trevor Webb Chosen Vale International Trumpet Seminar The University of Louisville Trumpet Ensemble which performed at the 2013 ITG Conference under the direction of Mike Tunnell The Chosen Vale International Trumpet Seminar is an annual program held by The Center for Advanced Musical Studies at the Enfield Shaker Museum in Enfield, New Hampshire. It is a two-week total immersion in trumpet and specifically modern repertoire for trumpet. While at the seminar I attended lectures, classes, and performed Cries and Whispers by Ned Rorem in a master class for renowned soloist Stephen Burns. We also participated in various chamber groups and ensembles and performed concerts for the Enfield community. The world famous faculty included: Steven Burns, Edward Carroll, Thomas Stevens, John Wallace, Mark Gould, Brian McWhorter, and Gabriele Cassone. My Enrichment Activity was split into three different programs. First I traveled to the 2013 International Trumpet Guild Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan where I performed with the University of Louisville Trumpet Ensemble, attended workshops and master classes, and networked with other trumpet players. Next I attended the Chosen Vale International Trumpet Seminar in Enfield, New Hampshire. The Chosen Vale Seminar is a world-renowned two-week immersion in modern music literature for trumpet taught by some of the best trumpet players and composers in the world. Finally I traveled to the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and attended the Oberlin Trumpet Workshop, another well-known program for developing soloistic playing on the trumpet. Oberlin Trumpet Workshop 2013 International Trumpet Guild Conference The International Trumpet Guild Conference is an annual conference devoted to the performance, study, and enjoyment of the trumpet. While at the 2013 edition held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I attended recitals, master classes, and lectures given by some of the most prominent trumpeters in the world such as: Thomas Hooten, Arturo Sandoval, Allen Vizzutti and Vincent DiMartino. In addition this, the University of Louisville Trumpet Ensemble performed at the conference, opening up for a master class by the principal trumpet player in the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra, Michael Sachs. Abstract The students and faculty of the 2013 Chosen Vale International Trumpet Seminar The Oberlin Trumpet Workshop was a weeklong program at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music just outside of Cleveland, Ohio. I spent two weeks in a class of twenty students studying the method of the late Jimmy Stamp, a renowned teacher and pedagogue of the trumpet, with Roy Poper, the professor of trumpet at Oberlin, and Arto Hoornweg, second trumpet in the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. We were instructed on Jimmy Stamp’s technique and warm-up routine, performed solos in a European master class setting, participated in several trumpet ensembles, and took private lessons from Roy Poper and Arto Hoornweg. The week culminated in a Concert of a solo that we had performed in a master class as well as the trumpet ensembles that we had been rehearsing throughout the week in Oberlin’s beautiful Warner Concert Hall.
