Name

Tribute to Veterans: Trumpeting the Power of Music

Description

Occupying the Pritzker Military Museum & Library Chair in the CSO’s trumpet section, John Hagstrom has produced an hourlong video that highlights the trumpet’s key role in military and orchestral music. Weaving together several elements — Hagstrom’s live trumpet demonstrations, interviews with Marine Band directors past and present, and archival footage — Tribute to Veterans: Trumpeting the Power of Music honors two essential American art forms. Released on Veterans Day, the video features musical performances and demonstrations by Hagstrom, the CSO and “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band of works including Nowlin’s “Let Freedom Ring” and Sousa’s “Semper Fidelis.”
