-A A +A

Internationally renowned trumpeter Freidemann Immer will be performing June 21 in Lebanon along with Kentucky Baroque Trumpets.
The concert is scheduled for 7 p.m. June 21 at St. Augustine Church in Lebanon. This will be Immer’s second appearance in Lebanon with Kentucky Baroque Trumpets.
Immer started specializing in the baroque trumpet in the 1970s, and he has performed with orchestras all over the world, including the Concentus Musicus Wien, Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, Academy of Ancient Music Berlin, la Stagione Frankfurt, Academy of Ancient Music London, Boston Baroque, and Aston Magna USA. Immer is a professor for baroque trumpet at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln Germany and at the Royal Music-Academy in Copenhagen, Denmark. He also gives master classes for trumpet players around the world, and he leads the Trompeten Consort, which he founded in 1988. This ensemble is best known for performing music for trumpets, timpani and organ.
Immer previously performed with Kentucky Baroque Trumpets in June of 2013, which coincided with the opening of the exhibit featuring Don Johnson’s J.W. Pepper instruments at the Marion County Heritage Center. Johnson lives in Marion County and is the founder and director of Kentucky Baroque Trumpets.
Johnson and his groups, Kentucky Baroque Trumpets and President Lincoln’s Own Band, recently performed at the International Trumpet Guild Conference. President Lincoln’s Own was included in Stephen Spielberg’s “Lincoln” and the National Geographic movie “Killing Lincoln.” Johnson and his bandmates have played at two Presidential Inaugurations, including most recently last fall at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C.
