    For those of you that are in the Dallas area (or within comfortable driving distance to Dallas). Phil Smith will be giving a masterclass this saturday (6/24/06). Bert Truax, formerly of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, is putting on his 2nd annual trumpet camp. It's a really great camp from what I've seen of it, he's bringin in lots of big name pros to speak/play throughout the week.

    If you're interested check it out:

    Brad,

    Looks like a fantastic line-up. Wish I could attend and thanks for posting it.

    You'll enjoy Jon Lewis. Nice guy and fantastic musician / trumpeter.
    Mention my name, give him 70 cents and he'll buy you a coke! :lol:

    If you don't play on a GR and you stay alert through Gary's lecture you will be sold!!

    Please be sure to give us all a report!

    I attended the Phil Smith masterclass at the Coast Guard Academy earlier this month.

    He is a wonderfully gentle soul, and provided a great learning experience for all participants and attendees.

    He opened with the Mahler 5 excerpt (which one of the participants also played :-o ), and the nuances in the performance thrilled me.

    If you can get there - GO!
