The 2nd annual Midwest Trumpet Festival, again hosted by Todd Hastings at Pittsburg State University, took place on October 10-11, 2010. Northwest students Brittany Terwey and Rachel Sneed participated in the festival, which featured clinicians Dr. Joel Treybig (Belmont University), Mr. Al Hood (University of Denver), Dr. Todd Hastings (Pittsburg State University), Mr. Tito Carillo (University of Illinois), Dr. Iskander Akhmadullin (University of Missouri), Mr. Billy Hunter (Metropolitan Opera House Orchestra), Mr. John Sneider (Jazz Recording Artist and Composer/Arranger), Mr. Steve Leisring (University of Kansas), and Dr. William Richardson (Northwest Missouri State University).
Billy Hunter, co-principal trumpet of the Metropolitan Opera House Orchestra, was featured as a guest recitalist. In addition, he presented a master class with trumpeters from the University of Missouri, the University of Kansas, and Northwest Missouri State University. Northwest student participation in this year's festival was made possible through generous undergraduate research support from Dr. Charles McAdams, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at our fine institution.
