Michael Sachs demonstrating his method of projecting sound with his trumpet

On Friday January 20th, 2017, the Cleveland Orchestra performed a spectacular concert at Hancher Auditorium! The UI Trumpet Studio's TA, Kenken Gorder, was able to coordinate a Q & A session with Principal Trumpet of the Cleveland Orchestra, Michael Sachs and Hancher administration at the conclusion of the concert! Approximately 15-20 UI SOM members were in attendance for the session. Sachs was gracious enough to provide a 1-hour and 5-minute post-concert "hang" as he called it; 4-times the length of the 20-minutes that was originally intended! He had many insightful comments to share not only to trumpet players, but all musicians!
