The GVSU Trumpet Day is an opportunity for high school trumpeters or brass ensembles to perform on a recital (perhaps in preparation for upcoming auditions or Solo & Ensemble), learn some new trumpet ensemble music, and hang out with the GVSU Trumpet Studio and Professor, Dr. Alex Wilson.

The event will include:

- a trumpet masterclass with Dr. Alex Wilson, including both group activities and coaching of individual soloists and ensembles

- a mass trumpet ensemble rehearsal, including all Trumpet Day attendees and members of the GVSU Trumpet Studio

- a recital, including performances by soloists, ensembles, and the mass trumpet ensemble
