Description:

CMC associate composer and Assistant Professor of Composition at Central Michigan University, Evan Ware, will have his new trumpet duet, "AMERICAN APOCALYPSE" premiered in Mount Pleasant during the residency of guest artist Ivano Ascari.

After graduating from the Parma Conservatorio, renowned trumpeter Ivano Ascari went on to a career in both performing and teaching. Ascari has also performed with the “Verona Brass Ensemble” for Pope John Paul II at the Vatican and in many European countries, as well as China and the US.

His collaboration with composers later led to his quest for new repertoire for trumpet. One of the highlights of this valuable collection of new works is a concerto by the Greek composer Dimitri Nicolau.

Don't miss this incredible display of trumpet expertise as Ivano Ascari takes the stage at Staples Family Concert Hall!
