Adjudicating at 2018 Yamaha Australian National Band Championships

Posted by

It was brilliant to co-adjudicate with Erin Ellenburg for the Open Flugelhorn section at the 2018 Yamaha Australian National Band Championships.

The third movement from my Flugelhorn Concerto was the set piece. It was exciting to hear so many variations of the work, especially given that I’ve only ever performed the work myself and never actually watched a performance.

Congratulations to everyone who performed! Thank you for taking the time to learn quite a challenging work.

Trumpet Case Questionnaire

Posted by

Hi there,
 
As part of the Australian trumpet and cornet playing community, I would like to invite you to take part in a questionnaire that I have devised.
 
I have discussed with some of you our joined frustration regarding the lack of affordable, comfortable, and appealing trumpet backpack cases available. Although I’m not sure I will be able to solve this problem, this questionnaire is my first step in considering what comes next.
Please feel free to forward this on to your Australian trumpet and cornet playing colleagues, parents of students, bandmates etc.
 
This questionnaire should take no more than 5 minutes to complete:
QUESTIONNAIRE HERE
 
 
 
Thank you in advance for your time.
 
 
Kind Regards,
Louisa Trewartha

My Fair Lady

I’ve been having a great time playing second trumpet in the Melbourne season of My Fair Lady, directed by Dame Julie Andrews. It’s also been an exciting opportunity to cover first trumpet for a few weeks of the run. A wonderful show- on until the end of July, ’17. Come check it out!
