2012 Charles Dean Memorial Trumpet Concert: A Musical Celebration of Classic America

2012 September 5

Join Us Sunday, September 23, at 2 p.m. at the Santa Fe College Fine Arts Hall Auditorium in Gainesville. Enjoy a musical celebration of the history and beauty of our country, from the mountains to the prairies, featuring our annual Charles Dean Trumpet Presentation.

Dr. Charles Dean (1929-1992) was a founding member, principal trumpet and president of the Gainesville Community Band.  Each year, the Band plays a concert in memory of Dr. Dean and awards a trumpet to an outstanding Alachua County middle school student musician.  The trumpet, donated by Hoggtowne Music, 5200 NW 43rd Street, Suite 501, means that a middle school band student will learn and enjoy music on a quality instrument, making practice and performance a rewarding experience for years to come.  This will be the 21st year that award has been given.
