I want to make an announcement about the upcoming Trumpet Festival of the
Southeast at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa on February 26-28.
Professional and student trumpeters of all ages will be in attendance. Many
trumpet ensembles will perform during the event and there will be lots of
exhibits as well.

On Friday night's concert Pat Harbison will perform with the University of
Alabama faculty jazz combo and Alex Yates and Harbison will perform with the
University's top big band. Saturday morning Yates and Harbison will present a
clinic titled "21st Century Trumpet: No Limits!" Other clinics include sessions
with composer/pianist Joseph Turrin and Philip Smith. Saturday night will
conclude with a recital by Mr. Smith and Mr. Turrin.

Yates and Harbison (along with others) will also be participating in a special
forum on Sunday morning for trumpet teachers.
