The program will feature numerous pieces for the 30-member ensemble, along with works for smaller groups. The performance will begin with the U.S. premiere of Jack Stamp’s “WASBE 2011 Fanfare,” which was commissioned for the 2011 WASBE (World Association for Symphonic Bands and Ensembles) Conference, which was held in Taiwan. David Ferguson, assistant dean of the College of Fine Arts, will be the featured soloist on an arrangement of “Here’s That Rainy Day.”

The IUP Trumpet Ensemble includes both music majors and non-music majors, who audition for acceptance into the group. For more information about the IUP Trumpet Ensemble recital, please contact Kevin Eisensmith at 724-357-1246.
