HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University's Department of Fine and Performing Arts will present a trumpet recital featuring John Holt, chair of instrumental studies at the University of North Texas, on Tuesday, March 31.
The free recital will be held at 7:30 p.m. in Southeastern's Pottle Auditorium. A masterclass for students will be held at 2 p.m.
Holt is associate professor of trumpet at UNT and has served as principal trumpet with the Dallas Opera Orchestra since 1989, where he has received several opera service awards. He has performed on numerous recordings with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Dallas Opera Orchestra and the Voices of Change. He has been recorded on six solo recordings, all on the Crystal Records label.
His visit is being coordinated by Logan Place, Southeastern instructor of trumpet, who said Holt is "the consummate musical artist, having appeared as a soloist with orchestras throughout the country and Europe."
Place said the program includes standards of the trumpet repertoire, including "Sonata" by Kent Kennan, "Lento et Scherzo" by J.E. Barat, "Legende" by Georges Legendre, and "Concerto for Trumpet" by Alexander Artutunian.
