What to Expect
A good range of musical ability on trumpet - from renaissance/baroque and classical to jazz/modern. I can arrange pieces normally for keyboard or voice to trumpet part and have a very good ear. I also can play with other instruments well that aren't traditionally paired with trumpet and will sound very good (e.g., violin, clarinet, etc.). On top of trumpet, I have good choral training and can add to any vocal needs in a performance.
I have played trumpet with many different organizations and groups, including regional Pennsylvania brass ensembles (Dillsburg Brass, St. Johns Concert Series Evensong brass ensemble, and 1st Presbyterian brass ensemble), various church events, special events (anniversaries, etc.), and assisting vocal choirs (York Symphony Chorus Chamber Singers and York Honors Choirs). I currently work professionally in business, but music is my passion.
Additional Booking Notes
Just need good lighting. I supply instrument, stand, etc.
Influences & Inspiration
Classically, my skill and sound have been heavily influenced by the legendary Maurice Andre and the Canadian Brass Ensemble. I think of Miles Davis as a good jazz influence although most of my playing is either classical or contemporary.
