  • 4-6 April 2019: Henderson State University Trumpet Guild, in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, hosted Doc Severinsen to work with students and perform with the Arkansas All-Star Jazz Band. "His clinic was everything we wished for – educational, inspiring, funny, and deeply personal. His knowledge and lifelong experience with jazz were stunning... Doc focused on the big picture: how to approach improvisation, historical precedents, and what to listen for in recordings...The big-band concert was virtually sold out, drawing people from a several-hundred-mile radius."
