The Rocky River Chamber Music Society is pleased to feature West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church’s spectacular Holtkamp Organ in an evening of works for the trumpet and organ on Monday, November 18, at 7:30 p.m. at West Shore Church, 20401 Hilliard Boulevard in Rocky River. Artists will be Judith Saxton, trumpet, and Timothy Olsen, organ, who have collaborated as a duo for over a decade while colleagues at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. They have commissioned pieces for their duo through competitions and connections. Both artists have extensive experience in music education, presenting master classes, and appearing in concerts throughout the United States and the world.

Judith Saxton has had a multi-faceted career as international soloist, chamber and orchestral musician, and advocate of new music. She is comfortable in all genres and has performed with artists as diverse as Mannheim Steamroller, the Temptations, Placido Domingo, and Joshua Bell. Judith Saxton has soloed on several recordings under eight different labels, and has contributed frequently to the Brass Herald and the Journal of the International Trumpet Guild.

Dr. Timothy Olsen began his study of the organ at age 13, and continued his studies at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, where he earned a Doctor of Musical Arts and Master of Music Degrees in Organ Performance and Literature. He is currently Professor of Organ at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Dr. Olsen has performed organ recitals in 28 states and has been featured multiple times on Minnesota Public Radio’s Pipedreams.
