Now in its 39th year, the Music Guild concert will open its season on Friday, October 6, with renowned trumpeter and Palisades resident Jens Lindemann. He will be playing the Trumpet Concerto by Franz Joseph Haydn and Allen Vizzutti’s evocative Rising Sun.
Lindemann was the first classical brass soloist to receive the Order of Canada. He has performed in every major concert venue in the world, from the Philharmonics of New York, Los Angeles, London, Berlin, Moscow, and Tokyo to Carnegie Hall and even the Great Wall of China.
His career has ranged from appearing internationally as an orchestral soloist, being featured at the 2010 Olympics for an audience of two billion people, and at a solo Command Performance for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
He is an acclaimed recording artist and distinguished professor of music at UCLA.
Classically trained at the Juilliard School in New York and McGill University in Montreal, Jens has performed as soloist and recording artist with classical stars such as Sir Neville Marriner, Sir Angel Romero, Pinchas Zukerman, Charles Dutoit and Jukka Pekka Saraste.
