WCU trumpet student Kelly Koen writes: "We just wanted to let you know that the Western Carolina University Trumpet Festival has been scheduled for January 16-17, 2004. This year's Festival (in Cullowhee, North Carolina, about an hour west of Asheville) will feature clinics and performances by
Jon Faddis, Laurie Frink (Carmine Caruso Specialist), and Denver Dills (winner of the National Trumpet Competition) among other eminent performers, and is hosted by Dr P. Bradley Ulrich. Our website is up and running - please see the reference below for full details.
"We hope that you and your students can attend if you are near the western North Carolina region. Trumpet ensembles from any universities are welcome to perform on our Festival of Trumpets program on the 17th. Please let us know ASAP if you are interested in performing.
"This year's Festival has intentionally been scheduled on Martin Luther King weekend. University students coming back from Holiday break the week before probably won't want to go home so soon after beginning a new semester ... so why not attend two days of fantastic trumpet events and go skiing at Cataloochee (which is 30 minutes from WCU) instead of going home again? We hope to see you!"
