Thanks to everyone who came out to New Brunswick last Saturday for the ACLU Benefit Concert "Winds of Change"! Organized by Rutgers University adjunct oboe professor Dr. Erin Banholzer and featuring Rutgers adjunct bassoon professor Dr. Christopher Wickham, Rutgers Director of Chamber Music: Extension Program and New Jersey Symphony Orchestra pianist Dr. Allison Brewster Franzetti, Del/NJCU/CUNY: Brooklyn College adjunct saxophone professor Todd Groves, and myself. We raised $1001!
We traveled to Hersey, PA to be the house band for the opening night concert of ITG 2017 which was streamed live at ITGConference.org. Just like the flute convention, trumpet enthusiasts, professional and amateur, made the trip to Hersey Lodge to begin a week of trumpet-centric events and performances. The evening's trumpet soloists were true masters of their instruments.

A highlight was catching Doc Severinsen leading a mass Aida fanfare arrangement and hearing that he attended our concert!
