Trumpet Masterclass with Thomas Hooten
Tom Hooten, the principal trumpet of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, will be conducting a masterclass with selected IPFW music majors on Friday, May 13 at 4:00 p.m. in Rhinehart Music Center. The next evening, Saturday, May 14, he will perform Alexander Arutunian’s Trumpet Concerto in A-flat major, with the Fort Wayne Philharmonic for an evening of Russian classics.

Hooten can be heard on numerous Los Angeles Philharmonic recordings, including Mahler’s Ninth Symphony and Lutoslawski’s Symphony No. 1. He has also recorded Scriabin’s Poem of Ecstasy and Gandolfi’s Garden of Cosmic Speculation with the Atlanta Symphony. Prior to joining the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Hooten served as Principal Trumpet in the Atlanta Symphony from 2006-2012 and released Trumpet Call, his first solo album, in 2011. Hooten began his career in 2000 with a trumpet/cornet position in “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band in Washington, D.C., where he was often a featured soloist. While with the Marine Band, Hooten won the 2nd trumpet audition with the Richmond (VA) Symphony, where he continued to perform through 2004. A native of Tampa, Florida, he earned his Bachelor of Music degree from the University of South Florida and his Master of Music degree from Rice University.

This intimate learning opportunity is open to trumpet players of all ages as well as anyone else interested in observing absolutely free of charge. For more information contact IPFW Department of Music Chair Dr. Greg Jones at 260-481-6726 or by email at jonesg@ipfw.edu.
