Of Note

As a trumpet artist, Dr. Marisa Youngs has performed with a wide variety of ensembles and as a featured soloist with several orchestras and wind bands. She has worked with renowned conductors, including Marin Alsop, Leonard Slatkin, and H. Robert Reynolds, and has appeared in historic venues such as Boston’s Symphony Hall, Pittsburgh’s Heinz Hall, Tanglewood’s Ozawa Hall, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin, Ireland.

Michael Mauldin first visited New Mexico in the 1950’s when his father, a Presbyterian minister, brought his family to church retreats at Ghost Ranch, near Abiquiu. He determined as a boy that he wanted to live in a place like that—a place that “not only surrounds you with space, but that opens up new space inside you.” It wasn’t until after completing a Bachelor of Music degree in piano and music education at Washburn University in Topeka and graduate work in piano pedagogy at the University of Colorado at Boulder, that Mauldin decided to fulfill his childhood wish. He came to Albuquerque in 1971, in time for a new-year’s-day earthquake.

Aaron Copland was appalled at first,  and then enchanted by New Mexico’s rugged terrain. He rediscovered his Jewish heritage in Santa Fe. The musician spent two months in the state in 1928 while he was struggling to create a distinctly American sound, author and researcher Lois Rudnick said.
