Wonderful, Beautiful, Trumpet Magic Somewhere Over the Rainbow
"Somewhere Over the Rainbow" with Igor Fedorov.
Today we get to hear one of my favorite songs played in a beautiful unique way by Igor Fedorov. Igor was inspired to play this version of the original tune by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole, because of the touching lyrics and the freeing and relaxing feel of the ukulele being played. "Somewhere Over the rainbow" has always been a song Igor turns to when his life gets hectic or stressful; or just in need of some time off. He becomes inspired by this song every time he hears it, and because of that he enjoyed recording it that much more. It is always a blessing getting to play something we are passionate or inspired by. Igor's happiness was doubled because his friend joined him by playing the ukulele for this video.
Igor is a 5th year Music Education Major at California State University of Sacramento. He has played the trumpet for over ten years now and has been teaching music for the last five.
Igor is ecstatic with what he is playing and recording. It makes him feel wonderful to be able to inspire other musicians and he hopes to put smiles on many faces just by being able to do what he loves. He gets a lot of positivity from his viewers to keep growing and building, and that plays a big part in helping him keep motivated.
Being able to record his music videos on YouTube has always been a dream of his and having the confidence to do it was the wall that blocked him from doing so; but he broke that wall and has posted many videos so far. He is extremely glad to have passed that hurdle; as are we, because if he had not, we would not get to experience hearing his beautiful trumpet music.
As sweet as Igor and his music is, we wish him the best of the luck in all his musical endeavors. Thank you, Igor, for letting us glimpse into your world today.
