The Trumpet Ensemble performs at the 2006 International Trumpet Guild Conference.
ÒThe Towson University Trumpet Ensemble, under the direction of Luis Engelke, performed an exciting program for their prelude. The Fantasia Brasiliera by JosŽ Ursicino da Silva ÔDudaÕ consisted of four movements and soloist, David Ballou, was featured in David Wilborn's Fantasy for Trumpet. Towson's performance of the da Silva work crackled with Latin rhythms, attractive lyricism, and impressive precision. Wilborn's Fantasy showcased Ballou's heroic solo trumpet soaring over the ensemble's well-played rhythmic accompaniment.Ó
