"Path of Discovery"

National Trumpet Competition

After being accepted from a pre-screened audition, GVSU Trumpet Ensemble C will be competing in the semi-finals of the National Trumpet Competition 2012 in Fairfax, Virginia. Our trumpet ensemble, performing Path of Discovery by Eric Morales, will be competing with the most prestigious trumpet studios in the country such as Juilliard and Northwestern. Grand Valley has a very strong reputation in this competition. Our trumpet ensembles and solo musicians have both earned medals and won on numerous occasions. In addition to participating in the competition itself, we will also be in attendance of Master classes taught by some of the highest regarded trumpet performers and professors in both the country and abroad. The National Trumpet Competition is one of the highest regarded showcases of trumpet excellence and it will be a privilege to compete under Grand Valley's name.
