Adelaide Orchestral Trumpet Workshops with Dave Elton & Robin Finlay
Sydney Symphony Orchestra Principle Trumpeter David Elton and former Principle Trumpeter of the South African National Symphony Orchestra Robin Finlay presented workshops on orchestral trumpet section playing at the Elder Conservatorium in Adelaide.
Dave and Robin led 20 trumpeters through a routine before talking about deeper concepts regarding playing in a section, including: etiquette, listening (not just to the rest of the section, but to great trumpeters and sections), auditioning, repertoire, and other facets of being a good section player.
The attendees represented a diverse range of age, experience, and skill. This led to a number of interesting questions, all of which were fielded great clarity by both Robin and Dave.
