The KSO kicks off its expanded 27th Summer Series in Devou and Tower Parks with a trumpet extravaganza on Saturday, July 10 and Sunday, July 11.
Back in the 1970s, trumpeters Maynard Ferguson, Doc Severinsen, Don Ellis, Bill Chase and Chuck Mangione were hitting the pop, rock and jazz charts and appearing on national television shows with big band and combo acts that took trumpet playing to new virtuosic and stratospheric heights. These are the musicians who inspired trumpet players over the last several decades, including the talented trumpeters assembled to play this program — Matthew Anklan, Joshua Kauffman, Rob Parton, John Zappa and Hank Mautner.
Whether you like your trumpet playing mellow and soothing, or prefer high, loud and fast, you won’t want to miss Hornucopia. Seniors and others who wish to avoid crowds are invited to
attend the Saturday 10:00 a.m. dress rehearsal at Devou Park. Others can join the program streamed live at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, July 11 from Tower Park.
