Premiere trumpet soloist will play at the Blue Heron this weekend
Vashon Allied Arts will bring the classical sound of the trumpet with piano accompaniment to the Blue Heron at 4 p.m. Sunday with a concert by Raymond Deleon.
At the age of 6, Deleon began playing the trumpet in his native country, the Philippines. Three years later he had his first solo performance.
Deleon went on to study at the University of Santo Tomas, twice received the Benavidez Award for International Excellence in Music and has been featured as a premier soloist with a number of orchestras including the Seattle Philharmonic.
Vashon pianist Ann Herfindahl will accompany Deleon in the concert program that includes Oskar Böhme’s Trumpet Concerto in F minor, Variations from Norma, Musseta’s Waltz from La Boheme and Joseph Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto in E flat.
Tickets are $12 for VAA members, students and seniors and $16 for general audience. Tickets are available at VAA, the Heron’s Nest and www.vashonalliedarts.org.
