Gardner-Webb Trumpet Summit Features Three Acclaimed Musicians

GWU Distinguished Artist Series

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—The Gardner-Webb University School of Performing and Visual Arts and Department of Music are hosting the GWU Trumpet Summit Jan. 19-20. The event, which is part of the GWU Distinguished Artist Series, is free and open to the public.

The Trumpet Summit includes a concert on Jan. 19 at 7:30 p.m. and masterclasses on Jan. 20 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Hamrick Hall’s Blanton Auditorium. Featured musicians include Charles Schleuter, principal trumpet, Boston Symphony; Garrett Klein from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro; and Tim Hudson, GWU professor of trumpet, Carolina Brass and Yamaha recording artist.

Schlueter performed with the Boston Symphony for 25 years, and is one of the most recorded trumpet players in history. He is also the founder of The Charles Schlueter Foundation, a non-profit organization “to encourage communication among brass players and to advance the level of performance, teaching and literature associated with brass instruments.”

Klein tours with Dallas Brass and has performed across the United States and Asia as a soloist, chamber player, and orchestral musician. While teaching at GWU, Hudson continues to travel and perform with Carolina Brass. Pianist Suzanne Polak will provide accompaniment.

Teachers receive continuing education credits for the masterclasses, which will encompass the aspects of playing, practicing, warming up, auditioning and careers. Students and the public are also welcome to attend.

To register or obtain more information, email the Chair of the Distinguished Artists Committee and professor of music, Dr. Patricia Sparti, at [email protected] and include Trumpet Summit in the subject line.
