The 2003 International Trumpet Guild Conference has begun
at Texas Christian University (TCU), Fort Worth.
Tuesday's Youth Day offered sessions of special interest to the
younger player, including master classes, lectures, competitions
and an evening concert with two TCU ensembles, Allen Vizzutti, Jon
Lewis and the Stoneback Sisters.
On Wednesday the Ed Landreth Auditorium was the venue for the morning's
opening concert, hosted by Jon Burgess and featuring inter alia
the Air Force Band of the West.
