Fourth Annual DU Trumpet Day- April 11, 2015!

It’s that time of the year again, for what has turned into a successful annual event for trumpet players.  Hosted by Alan Hood, professor of trumpet and director of the Lamont Jazz Ensemble at Denver University, this day is full of informative trumpet clinics given by some of the top Denver area professionals.   There is also a concert by some of DU’s finest trumpet ensembles, a wide range of instruments and associated equipment to try out, and an opportunity to receive some coaching while you jam with a small jazz group.  All of this for the price of a trumpet lesson…and did I mention a free lunch comes with the package? Oil up your valves, open up your ears and join in the fun!
