MINNEAPOLIS– The Solon High School Trumpet Choir auditioned and was accepted to perform at the International Trumpet Guild conference on May 25, 2011, in Minneapolis. They provided prelude music for Mark Niehaus who is the principal trumpet of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. They were the only high school group who performed at the conference; all other performances were by college groups or professionals from all over the world.
While at the conference they were able to see many great concerts by the biggest names in trumpet. They also got to meet and get autographs by Doc Severinsen. Their performance can be viewed by going to the SCSD web page, high school staff, Desmond Cervantez, Solon Youtube Page. http://www.youtube.com/user/ddc66
