Miranda Published in International Journal
May 19, 2014
Clayton Miranda, North Dakota State University School of Music Doctor of Musical Arts candidate, will be published in the June 2014 issue of the International Trumpet Guild Journal.
The article, titled “The Inception of Trumpet Performance in Brazil: An Historical Account,” will focus on how the trumpet was integrated into Brazilian society and used in increasingly meaningful ways. It is an area of research in its infancy and Miranda is a leader in bringing to light the uses of trumpet music beginning in 1500 through present day. This has been a research topic for Miranda for many years as it is important to understand the history of this instrument as it contributes a great deal to the development of music in the Americas.
Miranda is a native of Minas Gerais, Brazil, and performs as a soloist and orchestra/chamber music musician. His performances and research on Brazilian trumpet music include recitals, lectures, modern performance editions and publications. Miranda is an Anaconda Music Performing Artist and a student of Dr. Jeremy Brekke.
The International Trumpet Guild Journal is published four times a year and distributed to members in 60 countries.
