UK Trumpet Studio Takes Honors at National Competition

Published: Mar 25, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 25, 2014) — Students from the University of Kentucky Trumpet Studio won several honors at the 2014 National Trumpet Competition (NTC), held March 20-23, in Mechanicsburg, Pa.

 

The UK Trumpet Quintet took second prize in the highly competitive ensemble division. More than 60 ensembles from around the U.S. submitted recordings. Thirty of these ensembles were selected for competition in the live, semifinal round in Mechanicsburg. The UK ensemble competed in the live semifinal on March 20 and was selected as one of six ensembles to advance to the final round on March 22, where the ensemble members were selected as the second prize winners.

 

The quintet is comprised of pre-mechanical engineering sophomore Aaron Brewer, of Madisonville, Ky.; music performance freshman Drew Burke, of Pikeville, Ky; music performance freshman Caden Holmes, of Madisonville; music education sophomore Conner Kinmon, of Williamstown, Ky., and music performance senior Jared Wallis, of Talala, Okla.

 

In addition to his honor with the quintet, Wallis advanced to the semifinal division of the solo competition performing "Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra" by Charles Chaynes. The graduate solo division also saw a UK alumnus, Eric Millard, awarded third prize.

 

The UK Trumpet Studio studies under the direction of Jason Dovel, assistant professor of trumpet, himself a former NTC prize winner.

 

The UK School of Music at the UK College of Fine Arts has garnered a national reputation for high-caliber education in opera, choral and instrumental music performance, as well as music education, composition, and theory and music history.
