Dr. Jason Bergman, Principal Trumpet of the Mobile Symphony Orchestra and Assistant Professor of Trumpet at The University of North Texas, will present a recital of romantic and neo-romantic works for trumpet. The concert will take place September 23 at 7:30 p.m. in the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center Recital Hall.

The second half will be compositions by American composers, including James Stephenson’s Fantasie, a work composed in homage of Dokshizer; a new work by trumpeter/composer Kevin McKee, Song for a Friend; and an arrangement by Dr. Bergman of George Gershwin’s Three Preludes.
