The previous owner of this horn was my good friend, who unfortunately is no longer with us-Mr.Hal Oringer-one of the famous trumpet collectors.Before he passed away he put my name in his will,mentioning that I could have this trumpet.
I play trumpet 19 years.During my 5 years life in U.S.A, was I priveleged to share the band stand with jazz artists such as Evin Jones, Claudio Roditi, Hal Galper, Bill Goodwin, Tim Armacost, Harvie.S and many others. My big-band experience includes Mingus Big-Band,The Brooklyn Big-Band and others.
In 2003 I was a Finalist in Carmine Caruso International Competition and I hope that I'll be lucky(with G-D's help and support)in upcoming Caruso Competition of 2005.
At the present Iam teaching in Essex Couny College Newark, NJ and I am playing in the trumpet secion of Ray Charles Orchestra.
When I firs tried Calicchio in 1995 I immideatly knew that THIS IS THE TRUMPET THAT WORKS THE BEST FOR ME.
Thank you Hal and Calicchio Trumpets.
