David Bilger - Trumpet
Monday, January 8, 2018
Academy of Music Ballroom
Presenting: the brass family! The brass family is the loudest of the Orchestra, and can be heard from far, far away, making its instruments perfect for fanfares and announcements. This instrument family includes the trumpet, trombone, French horn, and tuba. Brass players produce sound by buzzing their lips into the instrument's mouthpiece. Philadelphia Orchestra Principal Trumpet David Bilger will demonstrate the proud and loud trumpet as he guides the audience through this regal instrument family.
The Sound All Around concert series is presented by PNC Grow Up Great and is endowed in perpetuity by the Garrison Family Fund for Children's Concerts.
