More about trumpet soloist:
The Stanford Wind Ensemble is part of the Department of Music. Players who are part of this ensemble are not necessarily music majors, but potential doctors, engineers, and lawyers who share a strong passion for music. Admission to this group is through competitive auditions, and participation in the Wind Ensemble - like other musical ensembles - is a sign of prestige for students. Among the different ensembles of the University, the Wind Ensemble is one of the largest and more visible. It can be considered as an ambassador for the university.
The repertoire is among the most diverse and heterogeneous, and particularly favors modern compositions. In recent years, several composers have written for the Stanford Wind Ensemble. For this tour, Maestro Giancarlo Aquilanti composed the Concerto for Trumpet and Wind Ensemble. The solo part will be performed by renowned trumpeter Marco Pierobon. Fragments by Martino Torquati and Mirages by Davide Martelli also will be premiered during this tour.
