Folks, do we have a treat for y'all today or WHAT? The number 7 is said to be lucky, and we were very lucky indeed to snag an interview with none other than the trumpet queen herself, Mary Elizabeth Bowden! (Brass aficionados, you're welcome.) You MIGHT know Mary from her extensive solo career.....OR from her touring with the Kassia Ensemble....OR from her popular Instagram account, @marytrpt.....OR from.....(Okay, we'll stop now. You'll have to listen to the full episode to hear about her 3469873 other projects.)
Highlights include: a special performance from Mary's album Radiance, the number of trumpets and mouthpieces that can fit in a single tiny backpack, and a deep-dive into Rachmaninoff's "Symphonic Dances".
