I am in the beginning stages of organizing a trumpet fest here in Maryland again at the end of October or early November. (Mainly because I'm unhappy I had to miss the last one due to a gig! ) If the planets align properly, it is feasible, mainly because of some of the contacts that I have, or that people that I know have, I might be able to offer at least a sample of the following: Kanstul Trumpets Conn V1 Bach Strads Yamaha Xeno Kanstul Mouthpieces Curry Mouthpieces C & H mouthpieces Holbert Mouthpieces Eclipse GR and Northern Brass Mouthpieces Schilke/Bach/Marcinkiewicz Mouthpieces Warburton Mouthpieces On the spot brass repair On the spot mouthpiece/rim plating/instrument spot plating On the spot custom mouthpiece manufacture (or at least a demonstration) Lead playing clinic Legit Playing clinic Anything and everything else that people bring (I know people with horns ranging from my Schilke B6 to vintage Benges to Lawlers, Bachs, Yamahas, ZeuS! etc) And anything else I'm able to muster. I can't promise everything off of that list, but everything on that list is at least possible. I already have a venue, and it is not a school - it's a music store and the owner is a master brass repair tech who also makes custom mouthpieces, and does a fair bit of pro work for the Baltimore/DC area brass players. These are the possible dates: Sun, Oct 23 Sun, Oct 30 Sun, Nov 13 (probably Oct 30 or Nov 13) I might add that the store has 3 or 4 studio practice/teaching spaces too so it would be feasible to semi-privately get to wring out the horns and mouthpieces on display. What kind of interest would I have? I'm looking for 25-35 attendees. I would like it to be at least that, and although the store is pretty good sized, I think that it would only comfortbly be able to hold about 35 people at once.
