Boston-based trumpeter, composer/arranger, and educator, Chris enjoys an active and diverse musical career. Students have the opportunity to showcase their abilities each Spring at the Boston Conservatory.
As a trumpeter, he has performed with the Concord Symphony, Indian Hill Pops Orchestra, Neponset Valley Brass Quintet, and Boston Opera Collaborative. Prior to this, he performed on Main Street U.S.A at Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom Resort in Orlando, Florida. Merging his love for chamber music and education, Chris founded Bravado Brass, performing dynamic educational programs for local schools and community centers throughout greater Boston.
An active music educator, he has worked at Boston College High School as brass instructor for their Concert Band and jazz Big Band and various schools in Boston and Walpole, Massachusetts.
