The eight-member Grand Valley State University Trumpet Ensemble, under the direction of Alex Wilson, will be premiering my new piece Earthquake City at the Large Ensemble Semifinals of the 2016 National Trumpet Competition. This year, NTC is being 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 will also be at NTC for the premiere, thanks to a grant from the ASU School of Music. Hope to see some of you there; I’m looking forward to networking within the national trumpet community!
