The Erie Chamber Orchestra returns in January to

Former principal trumpet of the Atlanta Symphony and Professor of Trumpet at the Eastman School of Music, James Thompson, joins us for the first concert of 2016, performing Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto and the Josephine Waltz, arranged by the great Gunther Schuller.
James Thompson has performed all over the world, including a tour of Japan with the Eastman Wind Ensemble in 2004 (which current ECO General Manager, Daria Binkowski, also performed on!)
Here is a clip of him performing Slavic Fantasy at the National Trumpet Convention in 2012:
Tomorrow, we’ll preview our February concerts, featuring Erie’s own Harry T. Burleigh!
