I know almost nothing about this band, but this is a smokin’ hot funk arrangement of Shake it Off.
Here’s a composition of mine that I wrote based on my own melody for “This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.” The piece is rooted in salsa rhythms but is to be performed as a classical work.
The Brandenburg Concerto has long been regarded as one of the most challenging concerti for trumpet. Here is an excellent video showing Reinhold Friedrich performing it masterfully.
We want to congratulate Judy Z. for finishing every assignment in Eddie Lewis’ All-State Prep for Trumpet book. Not only did Judy complete every etude and Tonalization Study in the book, but she did it at a record age.

Mark used to live in Houston when he was in the Houston Symphony Orchestra. Today he is principal trumpet of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, one of the nation’s top trumpet spots.
