Enfield Native Selected to Perform in Major Competition


Enfield, CT, January 20, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Andrew Stetson, who grew up in Enfield, has been selected to play in the semi-final round of the National Trumpet Competition, March 12-15, 2009 in Washington, DC. Stetson will join nearly 20 other trumpet players in the graduate division to compete for nearly $40,000 in prizes.

The National Trumpet Competition, held annually in March, is the nation's most prestigious competition for the trumpet. Each year more than 250 trumpet players and ensembles send preliminary tapes to be considered for entry in the competition. Only a select few are invited to perform at the actual event. Winners of the competition have gone on to lead some of the world's most illustrious careers as soloists as well as jobs in many major symphony orchestras.

For this year's competition, Stetson will team up with long time friend and pianist, Becca Zeisler. Last June the duo teamed up for a second place finish at the International Trumpet Guild Solo Competition in Banff, Canada. You can hear both Stetson and Zeisler perform an entire solo recital on January, 31 2009 at Umass Amherst's Bezanson Recital Hall. That performance will begin at 7:30PM and is free and open to the public.

Andrew Stetson is a graduate student at the University of Massachusetts and holds a degree in Trumpet Performance from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. He performs regularly with the Infinity Brass Quintet and has performed with the Albany Symphony Orchestra as well as the Boston Philharmonic.
