Here’s a fantastic clip of Thomas Hooten, principal trumpet of the Atlanta Symphony, performing with the U.S. Air Force Band at the 2011 National Trumpet Competition. The piece is the third movement of Chronicles by Joesph Turrin. Thomas displays a singing, resonant, focused sound in all registers with incredible articulation clarity. Note the great playing/accompanying of the Air Force band. Enjoy!
