William Gregory Trumpet
Hugh Sung Piano
Have you ever heard a sound so loud come out of such a tiny instrument? That’s the magic of the trumpet! The trumpet is part of the brass family, and while this family is not the biggest, it is most certainly the loudest in the orchestra. The trumpet and all its siblings can be heard from far, far away so that makes it perfect for getting peoples’ attention! This family includes the trumpet, trombone, French horn, and tuba—all these instruments have very distinct shapes and sounds. Join trumpet player Anthony Prisk of The Philadelphia Orchestra for a thorough guide through this regal instrument family.
