Over the next few years, I will be continuing to catalogue the Voisin archives, translate old letters (from French) and complete my further research on Roger Voisin (father), Rene Voisin (grand-father), and Georges Gabriel Voisin (great-grandfather).
There are pictures, letters, solfege books, music, trumpets, mouthpieces, as well as many stories from colleagues and students to evaluate. There are spoken sound files, audio music performances, and even television broadcasts that are being added to the Voisin archives.
I also completed two DVD interviews with Roger in the summers of 2004 and 2005 on the back porch (graveled area) at his beloved cottage in Tanglewood. Some of those video clips will be posted on this website in 2015.
The 2015-2016 "In His Words" biography project on Roger L. Voisin will be produced in a DVD media format. That will provide us with the full impact of Roger with his words, his playing, his pictures, and other written materials that have chronicled his life work. Also included with be the "In Their Words" section that will include letters, articles, audio clips, and video clips from his students, his colleagues, and his friends on the impact Roger had on the trumpet, it's pedagogy, the brass community, the music world.
As I complete this project, I will be asking for your stories and personal comments to enrich the content and context of his life narrative.
Please join me in this journey.
