Lexie Kruse, a Master of Fine Arts in Trumpet Performance student in the School of Music, recently won second place and $500 at the Grand Junction Symphony Solo Competition in Colorado. She performed the Planel Trumpet Concerto, a French piece with three movements.

This annual competition in Grand Junction includes tape/preliminary round auditions for a variety of instruments. Three finalists are chosen for the live rounds.

Kruse’s ultimate dream is to be a soloist with major orchestras, so she plays in competitions like this to improve her performance skills, she says. “Participating in this competition was a fantastic experience because I had the privilege of playing with two other outstanding artists,” says Kruse. Kruse is a student of David Hickman, Regents' Professor of Music.
