The Trumpet Supergroup, founded by SSU studio trumpet instructor Dave Scott, will play original adaptations of works as diverse as Haydn's Lark Quartet, Bernice Petkere's Close Your Eyes and charts by TSG members Dave Scott and Doug Morton. Performers include low brass instructor Anthony Collins, trombone, and guest tuba player, Scott Choate, performing chamber works for brass.
