PSU Midwest Trumpet Festival
October 8 - 9, 2017

Under the direction of Dr. Todd J. Hastings, the Midwest Trumpet Festival's mission is to gather leading performers, educators, students, and community for an intensive time of large and small continuing education sessions, master classes, recitals, and concerts.

The festival will also serve to bring together the community of professional trumpet pedagogues and performers from the Midwest region. The festival will feature renowned trumpet performers and scholars and is open for the public to attend.

The Midwest Trumpet Festival will be held on the PSU Campus in the new Bicknell Family Center for the Arts.  Designed and constructed by the world's most renowned theater architects, this $33 million facility features a 1,100-seat performance hall, a 250-seat theater, a 3,500 square-foot art gallery and state-of-the-art technology.
