On April 9 at 8 p.m. Charles Pagnard, principal trumpet with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and professor of instrumental music at Cedarville University, will perform his annual trumpet recital. Pagnard conducts the University’s brass choir and teaches studio trumpet. He received his M.M. degree from the Eastman School of Music and has been at Cedarville since 1977.

This year, Pagnard will be joined by three other professional trumpet masters: Alan Siebert from the University of Cincinnati, John Schlabac of Ohio University and James Stokes from Appalachian State University. Comprising the Mid-American Trumpet Ensemble, the four men will present a concert featuring a variety of music styles through duets, trios and quartets. The group has also been selected to perform at this July’s International Trumpet Guild Conference held in Sydney, Australia.
