The eight-member Grand Valley State University Trumpet Ensemble, under the direction of Alex Wilson, premiered my new piece Earthquake City at the Large Ensemble Semifinals of the 2016 National Trumpet Competition. This year, NTC was held at Columbus State University in Columbus, GA on March 10th-12th. Earthquake City was commissioned by the GVSU trumpet studio in the fall of 2015.

I was also in attendance at NTC for the premiere, thanks to a grant from the ASU School of Music. I had a great time networking within the national trumpet community! ♦
