The UAB Trumpet Ensemble performed the past Spring at the prestigious International Trumpet Guild Conference, which was held May 23-26, 2012 at Columbus State University. The ensemble is directed by UAB Department of Music faculty James Zingara, D.M.A., and Steve Roberts, D.M.A.
Each year, ITG highlights top collegiate trumpet ensemble programs as prelude concerts for world-class headliner performances. UAB’s performance featured two world premiere compositions by UAB Music’s William Price, D.M.A, and Huntsville composer Bryan Page plus a new transcription by UAB Music’s Steve Roberts, D.M.A.
The annual ITG Conference features the world’s greatest trumpet and brass artists and is the trumpet event of the year.
