Matthew Frederick, Trumpet Recital
A faculty recital by Dr. Matthew Frederick on trumpet and Bryan Underwood on piano will offer a little something for everyone at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3 in Memorial Chapel on the Emory & Henry College campus.
Frederick, associate professor of trumpet and director of instrumental studies at Emory & Henry College, said the recital is part of a larger project that has him performing at Virginia Tech, Appalachian State, University of Virginia at Wise, and at Emory & Henry College.
Underwood is the music director at First United Methodist Church in Marion, and staff accompanist at Emory & Henry.
“It is an exciting opportunity to get to travel and perform for the different schools in our region,” said Frederick. “The program consists of the Arutunian Trumpet Concerto, a beautiful arrangement of Amazing Grace, an unaccompanied trumpet solo in a Latin flair, a contemporary song for trumpet by Eric Ewazen, and a brand new arrangement and edition of the Tessarini Trumpet Sonata that Bryan and I arranged.”
Frederick is the associate professor of trumpet and director of instrumental studies at Emory & Henry College. During his time at E&H, he has built a trumpet ensemble that is a two-time semi-finalist at the National Trumpet Competition and has been selected twice to perform at the International Trumpet Guild Conference.
The music professor also performs as co-principal trumpet with the Symphony of the Mountains and is an active lecturer on Civil War Brass Bands, as well as serving as a clinician for school music program.
The faculty recital, free of charge and open to the public, is sponsored by the Emory & Henry Arts Series and the Music Department.
