We trumpet players were whooping it up at The Sweetwater Music Horns A Plenty Brass Festival.

I was lucky enough to participate in a performance of an antiphonal work by Gabrielli originally composed for performance at Basilica di San Marco in Venice. Better yet, alongside former Canadian Brass and Teatro alla Scala  principal trumpet Stuart Laughton.

Thrill of a lifetime material.
