Top trumpeters will perform alongside community brass bands and student ensembles on Tasmania’s inaugural Brass Day this Sunday.
Brass Day is the brainchild of teaching guru and trumpeter Yoram Levy, who coordinates Brass at the University of Tasmania’s Conservatorium of Music and is the Principal Trumpet of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra (TSO).
“Brass Day is about connecting Tasmania’s diverse brass bands and fans. It is for everybody in Tasmania who is a music lover and drawn to the sound of brass instruments, and the whole event is free,” Mr Levy said.
Special guest and Principal Trumpet of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra Sarah Butler will run a brass masterclass, sponsored by Vincent Bach.
“We are very fortunate that Sarah Butler is coming south to Tasmania to impart her expertise. She is, in my opinion, one of the most outstanding trumpet performers in the country,” Mr Levy said.
“We’re also excited to learn from internationally renowned music educator and conductor Monte Mumford who will give a special lecture on The Art of Practice.”
To conclude the event, the Glenorchy City Concert Brass will perform alongside TSO Brass and University staff and students in a special concert.
The full schedule is available on Eventbrite.
