Shades of Blue Trumpet Ensemble – Competition Pieces for Trumpet Ensemble
Shades of Blue Trumpet Ensemble is a classically-trained chamber group made up of trumpet students at the University of Kentucky, all studying with Dr. Jason Dovel. The group, consisting of Morgan Bay, Aaron Brewer, Drew Burke, Caden Holmes, Conner Kinmon, Zach Robinson, and Jared Wallis, has performed together since 2013, and took second place in the 2014 National Trumpet Competition. After this competition, the group decided to record pieces written specifically for trumpet ensemble competition, birthing this album, Competition Pieces for Trumpet Ensemble.
