I had a great trip to Tennessee, performing at East Tennessee State University and Middle Tennessee State University. I performed lecture recitals of Adam Cuthbert’s music (Rikai and the Sonata) at both schools. Additionally, I was honored to share a trumpet & piano recital with UNC Alumni Dr. David Champouillon where I played the Peaslee Nightsongs, Tom Hooten’s awesome arrangements of 3 Rachmaninoff songs, and Ben Boone’s Peace that I recorded on Confronting Inertia. Great thanks to David and Dr. Mike Arndt for hosting me on my trip!!
