The latest

Hello friends, it’s been awhile. The latest: Sam is pleased to join the faculty of the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music as a guest lecturer for the trumpet studio during their 2021 spring quarter! In addition, he will also serve as trumpet faculty for the Lamont Summer Academy. Check out all the wonderful happenings here-

Although this year has been a complete slog, a few bright spots in the silver lining over the last year have been performing with the Denver Brass during their 20/21 virtual season! Info and past/future live streams can be found here:

Musical alliances have also been forged with Denver based band, Milquetoast & CO. You can check out some of Sammy’s string and brass arrangements on this beautiful tune:
