Symphony Spotlight highlights the careers of orchestral musicians across the country. My guest for our August segment is Herb Smith, trumpeter with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in Rochester, NY. In addition to his orchestral work, Herb is the leader of his own jazz quartet, trumpet instructor at the Eastman Community Music School, and an composer/arranger. Herb also works with students through the Young Audiences of America and travels across upstate New York doing workshops and presentations on classical music. He has played with many notable performers, including Natalie Cole, Doc Severinson, Chuck Mangione and Wynton Marsalis.
I hope you enjoy our chat!
Yours in good music,
