Conducted by Paul W. Popiel

Jens Lindemann is one of the world’s most exciting trumpet soloists and was recently named International Brass Personality of the Year (Brass Herald). He has played in every major concert venue in the world—from the Philharmonics of New York, Los Angeles, London and Berlin to Tokyo’s Suntory Hall and even at the Great Wall of China. Lindemann has also received many accolades, including Grammy and Juno nominations as well as the prestigious Echo Klassik Award in Germany.

Lindemann will perform with the KU Wind Ensemble conducted by Paul W. Popiel, director of bands at KU. The New York Times has described the wind ensemble as “one of America’s most esteemed concert bands.”

This concert will be a part of the 2021 Prairie Winds Festival.
