Bach Artist Select Program

Vincent Bach Corporation logo

Vincent Bach, owned and operated by Conn-Selmer, maintains the Bach Artist Select Program, allowing Bach Artists to make trips up to their factory in Elkhart, Indiana, to select the best trumpets and trombones.

In January 2018, Houghton Horns partnered with two Fort Worth-based Bach Artists to travel north and hand pick our Bach Stradivarius inventory.

Bach artist Dr. David Begnoche

David Begnoche is Assistant Professor of Trombone in the TCU School of Music. Previously on the faculty at the Longy School of Music, Mr. Begnoche has also served as artist-in-residence at Northeastern University and chamber music coach at Harvard University. He holds degrees from the New England Conservatory, the Manhattan School of Music, and the University of North Texas. Dr. Begnoche maintains an active performing career with groups throughout the U.S. and abroad, including The Boston Symphony Orchestra, Boston Pops, Dallas Opera, Sarasota Opera, and Albany Symphony.

After play testing dozens of trombones, Dr. Begnoche selected two Bach 42BO and three 42AF Tenor Trombones for Houghton Horns.

Vernon Richter, co-founder and current President of Center Stage Brass, a 10-member brass ensemble in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex dedicated to performing brass literature and promoting music education, is arguably one of the areas busiest private trumpet instructors with a studio of over 65 students all from Lewisville ISD. In addition to his private teaching schedule, Vernon also conducts weekly Trumpet Master Classes at the award winning Hebron High School in Lewisville ISD. Vernon has performed with the East Texas Symphony, Lewisville Symphony, Mesquite Symphony and Flower Mound Symphony. Vernon is also active as a freelance musician in the DFW area.

Vernon play tested several Bach Stradivarius trumpets, resulting in the order of four 180S37 models, delivered in time for the 2018 TMEA Convention.
