Instrument
Trumpet

Why did you choose your instrument / Pourquoi avez-vous choisi cet instrument ?
I really don’t remember why I chose the trumpet from the beginning. I think I may have remembered seeing a female cornet player in one of the military bands at the base my father worked at when I was a kid, and the image stuck with me.

What are your professional goals? / Décrivez quelques-unes de vos ambitions professionnelles.
I’d love to have a job in a large orchestra in a big city that has lots of opportunities to perform chamber music at a high level and teach a few students. I’d love to record a solo album once my orchestral career has been established. But, to be sure, no matter where my career takes me, I want to be incredibly busy!

What are your interests outside classical music / Avez-vous d’autres intérêts à part la musique classique ?
I love travelling and wandering around new cities. In my free time I like running and exploring bookstores to buy books I won’t have time to read.

Who is your favourite classical musician? / Quel est votre artiste (classique) préféré ?
I am enjoying hearing live performances of the orchestras in London while studying in the UK, especially the London Symphony Orchestra.

What has recently played on your Mp3? / Qu’écoutez-vous ces jours-ci sur votre Mp3?
Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony, some brass klezmir music, an album of Romantic French music written for trumpet, and an Afro-Cuban jazz CD.

What is there about you that you think people might be surprised to know? / Y a-t-il quelque chose à votre propos qui est un peu surprenant ou hors de l’ordinaire?
Everything that I have done in my life may seem to have been well planned and executed, but if you were there at the moment, you would know otherwise!
