UNLV Trumpet Festival

AIR DATE: February 26, 2010

What did Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Arturo Sandoval and Quincy Jones have in common? They all played that jazz favorite: the trumpet. Four world-class trumpeters swing into Nevada on Feb. 26-27 for UNLV's Trumpet Festival. They talk to us about performing around the globe, encouraging kids to pick up the trumpet, and why they think it's still the best instrument in town.

Steven Trinkle, Trumpet Festival organizer and creator; Adjunct Instructor of Trumpet, UNLV; and, Artistic Director and Conductor, Powder River Symphony
Chris O'Hara, Chair of the Brass Dept, South Shore Conservatory in Mass, Demo: Hero's Quick Step
