National Trumpet Competition

2016 National Trumpet Competition

We were incredibly pleased and proud to send seven of our Luther trumpeters to Columbus, Georgia to compete at the National Trumpet Competition in March of 2016. Michael Winkler, Sarah Lodge, Chelsey Schmeling, Curtis Cook, Maddy Ihde, Jakob Jorgenson and Liam Fraser competed in the 7-10 trumpets category of the Trumpet Ensemble Division of the competition. Over 100 submissions were entered for consideration from college, university and conservatory institutions from all over the country with only 21 selected for the live semi-final round of competition, which took place at Columbus State University. During the week, the students attended master classes by some of the most famous trumpet performers and teachers in the world. They also attended concerts by such fantastic artists as the Boston Brass and Chris Botti. We’re incredibly proud of these students for representing our studio, Music Department and Luther College with the utmost pride and distinction. Way to go guys!
