Georgia State University is proud to have renowned trumpeter Rex Richardson on November 8 & 9, however, there are significant changes to the Trumpet & Trombone Day workshop. We are now providing two free events – an evening concert on Friday night and a 3-hour master class on Saturday afternoon with Rex Richardson. Georgia State will no longer provide a trombone track, exhibitors, lunch or shirts.
We hope you will still plan to attend one or both of the two free events with Rex Richardson. Please view the schedule section for updated event information.
Please visit the School of Music website calendar (www.music.gsu.edu) for updated information regarding event parking.
“A startling display of virtuosity…This was something very different, played by a performer of rare gifts indeed.” — 4barsRest.com, in a review of Rex Richardson’s performance at the 2013 World Music Championship in Kerkrade, Netherlands
A veteran of the acclaimed chamber ensemble Rhythm & Brass, jazz legend Joe Henderson’s Quintet and Sextet, William Russo’s Chicago Jazz Ensemble, and the Brass Band of Battle Creek, known as the world’s “Rolls Royce of Brass Bands” (Brass Band World), he stays busy as a headline artist at international classical and jazz festivals and as a soloist with a multitude of orchestras, concert bands, brass bands and jazz ensembles on five continents. These ensembles have ranged from the Phoenix and Oregon Symphonies to the U.S. Army Field Band and Tokyo Wind Ensemble, and from England’s Fodens Brass Band to the U.S. Air Force’s Airmen of Note Jazz Ensemble.
Registration is not required to attend the concert or master class.
