The 24-trumpet Twin Cities Trumpet Ensemble (TCTE), under the direction of James Olcott, returns to the Ives with "Hooray for Hollywood!", an exhilarating concert featuring Hollywood Musician and University of Minnesota Asst. Professor of Trumpet, Marissa Benedict. Principal Trumpet of the Pasadena Symphony and a member of several other fine ensembles, she is a first call player in the LA studio scene. Benedict has performed on nearly 180 movie soundtracks, and she is heard regularly on the NBC Sports theme by film music icon John Williams. This show will include several pieces by Benedict accompanied by the TCTE, including Ralph Vaughan Williams' "English Folk Song Suite" and Erroll Garner's jazz classic "Misty". There will also be a composition commissioned for this concert: a medley of some 19 movie and TV selections, including The Godfather, L.A. Confidential, Star Trek, Dances with Wolves, Rocky, and Jaws. During a "Meet the Artists" session prior to the concert, Benedict will also share a few anecdotes from her experiences in Tinseltown.
For the Trumpet Ensemble's part, there will be fanfares (some from a collection of rediscovered 19th century English royal fanfares), marches, and other trumpet music of the type that has already cemented the reputation of this incredible one-of-a-kind musical organization. This family-friendly concert has something for everyone. And make sure you tell your trumpet-player friends about this show. They will kick themselves if they miss it!
