Gregory Jones, Truman’s trumpet teacher and conductor of the brass choir, spent July visiting Albania, Italy and Montenegro where he performed, conducted and taught a variety of master classes. In Saranda,  Albania, Jones served as chief of the faculty jury and also conducted the faculty brass ensemble (pictured above) and the faculty wind ensemble. His interviews appeared on three television channels and in two newspaper articles as he discussed implementing new ideas for music student education and training into local curricula. His visit to the region continues ongoing work with professors and students throughout the Balkans, especially with Albanian trumpet professor Sokol Saraci who spent six months at Truman recently as a visiting Fulbright Scholar.
