John Hagstrom
Adolphus Hailstork
An American Port of Call
Trumpet Concerto
Symphony No. 9 in C Major, The Great
The Fresno Philharmonic salutes our veterans with that most martial of all instruments, the trumpet. The Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s John Hagstrom (former Principal Trumpet of the U.S. Marine Band “The President’s Own”) performs Arutiunian’s spectacularly virtuosic Trumpet Concerto. Adolphus Hailstork’s An American Port of Call depicts the hustle and bustle of Norfolk, Virginia, home to the largest Navy base in the world. The concert concludes with Schubert’s glorious Symphony No. 9, one of the grandest statements of the human spirit.
You'd never guess he was a mild-mannered second trumpeter from the hair-raising high notes...or from the way he seamlessly unfurls long lines…
