2022 National Trumpet Competition Trip

March 29-April 3rd, Six members of the I.S.U. Trumpet Studio traveled with
Dr. McNamara to the 2022 National Trumpet Competition in Newark, Delaware. On their way to the competition, they made a stop at University of Maryland College Park to get a coaching from Chris Gekker. The six students performed a work commissioned by Dr. McNamara and composed by I.S.U. composition faculty member, Dr. Roy Magnuson. The work, inspired by Schubert’s Erlkönig is entitled “through the night, dark and drear.” Jeri Blade, KT Freimuth, Seth Marshall, Christian McLaughlin, Katherine Shindledecker and Ryan Valdivia played beautifully! Katherine also performed beautifully in the graduate solo division semi-finals.
