Andrew & Lance talk shop with Jamie Lipton, Euphonium Artist and Professor of Low Brass at Henderson State University.

 

 Jamie discusses her musical upbringing and how that led her to attending Northwestern and North Texas to study with Rex Martin and Brian Bowman. She tells us the reasons for her career decisions and the direction she would love to see Euphonium go in.

 

 When she’s not winning international competitions, teaching her students, playing/conducting in brass bands and preforming in various chamber groups, she’ll be watching her favorite sport, soccer.

 

 On top of all that, she has some good tips for our friend Jens!

Andrew & Lance are joined by Jim Nova, trombone player for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

Jim talks about how his successful audition for the Pittsburgh Symphony was the 39th of his career! He also shares a very moving story about the loss of his mother and the trombone that she saved up money to buy for him before she passed away.

He tells some really great stories about his father, a professional accordion player turned pizza parlor owner turned composer. Jim's story of the time his father hired an orchestra in Bulgaria to record some compositions he had written for him is one for the ages!

Finally, he talks about a side project he's been doing that recently got the attention of none other than John Williams himself.
