On May 23, School of Music faculty members Joel Treybig (trumpet) and Carolyn Treybig (flute), along with organist Polly Brecht performed by invitation at the 2012 International Trumpet Guild conference, which was held at the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts in Columbus, Ga. The trio performed Anthony Plog’s “Jocaan Trio” at the conference and was chosen to play based on the recording of the premiere performance given by the Treybigs with Andrew Risinger in Nashville, Tenn. last fall. The demanding piece features the three performers in a variety of combinations and also includes sections for flugelhorn, piccolo trumpet and piccolo flute along with the standard trumpet and flute. It has been praised for its innovative and challenging scoring. The ITG conference is held at a different location each year and features performers from around the world, with hundreds of trumpeters in attendance each year.
