Practicing for Performance: Presentation by Dr. Alan Klaus
1 pm, March 12, 2018
Room W400, Centre for the Arts
Free admission

We often work hard in the practice room and make significant progress only to see it disappear overnight. This workshop is geared for all instrumentalists looking to improve the art of practicing for tomorrow rather than for today. 

Dr. Alan Klaus has been assistant professor of trumpet and horn at Memorial University since 2012. Born in London, Ontario, he previously served as Visiting Assistant Professor of Trumpet and Low Brass at Montana State University and as Brass Specialist at Mount Allison University. He is honoured to have been selected as a Bach Trumpet Artist and enjoys maintaining a varied schedule as a performer and clinician.

Klaus recently released a CD, Distorted Mirrors, with American trombonist Timothy Dueppen including three new commissioned works. A featured soloist with the PEI Symphony Orchestra and at the Atlantic Band Festival, he has also appeared at numerous universities across North America for recitals and masterclasses. Klaus toured China as Principal Trumpet of the American Festival Orchestra and has performed with the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra, Bozeman Symphony Orchestra, Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra London (Canada), the World of Winds, the International Youth Wind Orchestra, the National Youth Orchestra of Canada and the National Youth Band of Canada.

While on-campus, Dr. Alan Klaus performs with Colleen Klassen (piano), and Dr. Josh Davies (trumpet) in the Music at Noon series at 12:15 pm, March 13 in the University Recital Hall.  Alan Klaus gratefully acknowledges the support of the University of Lethbridge, and the Office of the Vice President (Research), Memorial University, in helping to make this concert possible.
