TTU Lecture: ‘So you want to be a musician?’

"So, you want to be a musician?" is the title of a lecture to be presented at Tennessee Tech next month.  The lecture, part of the Center Stage series, is free and open to the public and begins at 7:30 p.m. on February 2nd in the Wattenbarger Auditorium of the Bryan Fine Arts Building. It's being presented by Philip Collins, the former principal trumpet player for the Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestras. Organizers say Collins will provide an entertaining lecture summarizing his experiences from more 31 years of performing and recording.

"Rarely can one get a wonderful opportunity like this to learn what goes on behind the scenes in the life of a musician for a major symphony orchestra and to discover some of the challenges of recording more than 100 albums," said TTU trumpet professor Charles Decker.
