AdamFest8 will be hosted by Dr. Karl Sievers at the School of Music, University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK 73019.
Pending the COVID situation, we plan to be live and in person for AdamFest8.
As always, there will be an all-star cast, great performances, master classes, discussions, something for everyone, all in a fun and welcoming atmosphere. All ages and levels of experience are welcome!

Our 8th annual Festival will be in the hands of a "who's who" of students of William Adam, many of whom are among the top trumpet artists in the world. In addition to our usual offerings of master classes, performances, and free lessons, we will have seminars dedicated to specific problem solving, jazz improvisation, developing skills on the trumpet, and classes for our youngest colleagues and their teachers.
Karl Sievers will host. Stay in touch with this web site as information on hotel and registration develops. You will not want to miss this! Each year has been fantastic, and our momentum continues to grow. Mr. Adam would smile...

This link will take you directly to our hotel registration, where the group rate is already set up:
The group rate is $89 per night, for a queen room, regardless of how many are in the room. You can get two adjoining rooms for $119 per night. This is payable directly to the hotel. We do not handle any of that.
There are other hotels in the area of course, and you can stay anywhere you want... But this one is plenty nice, has an onsite bar and food, and is where everybody will be hanging out in the evenings. The social aspect of our Festival is really terrific, so you will want to stay at "the" hotel.
The fee to attend the Festival is the same as always:
$75 for students
$200 for everybody else
The ONLY WAY to pay this fee is via PayPal, payable to:
of course this is a crazy good bargain, for all the learning, listening, good times, networking, and etc.. You can't touch this anywhere in the world for this price, and all proceeds just go to pay the bills, and any overage (should that occur!) goes into the scholarship fund.
Please spread the word about our amazing Festival!
