Conner S. First Division at Solo Contest
We wanted to congratulate Conner S. for earning a first division rating on his performance of a very difficult solo. Conner is only a freshman in high school, but he performed Fantasy for Trumpet by Claude T. Smith...a solo commissioned by Getzen for Doc Severinson. He got a one on this solo with some very nice comments from the judge. Not an easy solo, with high E's and some triple tongued arpeggios. He worked hard and the effort paid off.

Vintage Trumpet Treasures is a unique CD of turn of the century trumpet duets recorded by Eddie Lewis. You can read more indepth information about the
