A Joyful Dance

GSCB trumpet player Maggie Nelson created the program art for this cycle, drawing on her own background and artistic style for inspiration.

Maggie is an artist and art educator, and attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She joined GSCB three years ago after searching for a place to play, since, "Trumpets aren't great in small apartments with roommates!"

Read on to hear about Maggie's process and how she dealt with an artistic curve ball, and to see more of her work!
