Four Interlochen alumni took home honors at the 2010 National Trumpet Competition. Interlochen graduates took first place in the undergraduate and graduate divisions. All four also performed in the winning trumpet ensemble from The Juilliard School. The competition was held on the campus of George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia, this March.
“These are tremendous accomplishments,” said Ken Larson, the instructor of trumpet at Interlochen Arts Academy and the former teacher of all four students. “It was great to see so many of my old students. And it was even better to see them performing at such a high level.”
The award-winning Interlochen alumni included:
Lyn Schoch (IAA 06-08) took first place in the undergraduate division. She played the first movement of the Tomasi trumpet concerto. Lyn is in her second year at The Juilliard School.
Katie Miller (IAA 03-04) placed first in the graduate-level solo competition. She is in her sixth year at The Juilliard School working on a master’s degree.
Caleb Hudson (IAA 04-06) took third place in the undergraduate division. Currently in his fourth year at The Juilliard School, he played the second and third movements of the Tomassi concerto.
Colin Sieg (IAA 03-04) performed in the first-place trumpet ensemble from The Juilliard School.
