Concert in Dallas 6/22/09

June 22, 2009

I was in Kansas for last 10 days to teach and to perform at Sound Encounters. During those 10 days I made a very quick trip to Dallas, TX, to perform with my friend Jon, trumpet, and his girl friend, Liane, violin. Liane joined us for Ewazen’s piano trio which is a great piece to play! I have performed several pieces by Ewazen, and I liked all of them! Winter by Snow (I am not joking!) for a trumpet and a piano is a beautiful piece including lots of piano solos! I was so honored to play my PIANO solo at the Trumpet Festival! Besides above pieces we performed Gershwin, Turrin, Simon, and Damase. This trumpet camp was organized by Bert Truax and his wife, Sarah. Bert is a great man with a great vision on music education. And I was so happy to meet many wonderful trumpet players while I was there.

So I am back in LA for few days before taking off to the next trip. It is beautiful in LA LA Land!!
