Doug Lindsey joined the faculty at Kennesaw State University in the Fall of 2012. He recently graduated in December of 2012 from the UW- Madison with his DMA in trumpet performance. Already very active all over Atlanta, Dr. Lindsey has soloed with the Kennesaw Sate University Wind Ensemble, the Georgia Brass Band and has been a featured soloist in several other KSU events.
As a chamber musician, Dr. Lindsey concertized all over Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Illinois with both the Wisconsin Brass Quintet and the Isthmus Brass Ensemble. Prior to his tenure with WBQ, Dr. Lindsey performed with the Yale Faculty Brass trio in a series of concerts ending in Carnegie Hall in New York City. In addition to the faculty brass, Dr. Lindsey also pursued a busy schedule with the Atticus Brass Quintet –winner of the 2009 Aspen Music Festival Quintet Fellowship. With Atticus, Dr. Lindsey had the opportunity to play outreach concerts all over Connecticut, perform alongside the American Brass Quintet, and play an exclusive concert on the Millennium Stage of the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Most recently, he was appointed principal cornet of the Georgia Brass Band where he is responsible for leading an excellent cornet section.
As an outreach educator in Yale's Music in Schools program, under the direction of John Miller, Dr. Lindsey worked with dozens of young musicians each day. As a teacher, he had the task of preparing the students each week for a dizzying array of competitions and concerts that ranged from playing in the school lobby in the "rise and shine" concert series, all the way to unique opportunities at VH1 at the ‘Save the Music Foundation’ in New York City. Additionally, through this program, he was afforded the opportunity to create, rehearse, and conduct his own unique arrangements for the John Daniel's Middle School band program. Also, he enjoyed the privilege of adjudicating New Haven's very own school band competition. Not only was this time spent at John Daniel's some of the most effective training for teaching music, but it was probably among the most rewarding experiences to date.
As an orchestral musician, Dr. Lindsey has played principal and section trumpet with numerous orchestras and bands under the baton of some of the finest composers and conductors. Many of these fantastic experiences happened while attending the Aspen Music Festival and School in both 2009 as a brass quintet fellow and 2011 as the orchestral trumpet fellow. In addition to orchestral section work, Dr. Lindsey has had many appearances as a featured soloist - performing repertoire ranging from Bach’s 2nd Brandenburg Concerto to Arban’s Carnival of Venice. As a chamber soloist competitor, Dr. Lindsey has competed as a finalist in the International Trumpet Guild’s solo competition, the National Trumpet Competition, and several rounds and levels of both the Arkansas and Connecticut MTNA solo division.
Previous to UW, Dr. Lindsey studied with Allan Dean at Yale, earning his Master of Music with the distinction of winning the John Swallow excellence in brass prize. Prior to Yale he studied with Ray Mase, Louis Ranger, Kevin Cobb, Scott Moore and Richard Rulli. Dr. Lindsey received his music performance and music education degrees magna cum laude from the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville.
