TRUMPETERS for fanfares, voluntaries, weddings or jazz
Style: Our various experienced trumpeters (including Jim, pictured below) have a versatile repertoire including fanfares, wedding favourites such as pieces by Jeremiah Clarke and John Stanley, classical (mainly baroque), and jazz.
Profile: Jim, one of our trumpeters and shown here, is a professional session and orchestral musician, teaches and conducts. He can provide a fanfare for the entrance of the bride, or of the celebrity at a wide range of events, and can be engaged for church ceremonies where traditional procession and recession music can be very successfully played by solo trumpet.This music is very appropriate to formal openings, award ceremonies, sporting events and great occasions. Jim is also a sought-after jazz musician. One of Allegro Arts Live Music’s outstanding artists, Jim plays with other instrumentalists forming jazz groups in a whole variety of sizes and styles suitable for all events where jazz music is required.
