Canadian-born trumpeter, Philippe Brunet, has performed across North America and Europe as a soloist, chamber, and orchestra musician. As an advocate for New Music, he has collaborated with composers on over a dozen new works; most recently, world-renowned composer, Ken Ueno.
Philippe’s teachers and colleagues have called him, “…a visionary and tireless trumpeter,” (Edward Carroll); “…a person that sees no obstacle that cannot be overcome. In fact, he sees that obstacle as a play toy to invent and discover new innovations with creativity and aplomb.” (Russell DeVuyst). Philippe specializes in extended trumpet techniques, including the use of extended vocal techniques such as throat singing combined with the trumpet in non-idiomatic ways.
Dr. Brunet recently completed his Doctor of Musical Arts in Trumpet Performance at the University of Miami Frost School of Music. Prior to this, Phillipe completed a Master of Fine Arts at California Institute of the Arts, a Bachelor of Music degree at Canada’s Schulich School of Music at McGill University, and a Graduate Performance Fellow spot at Bard Conservatory. Phillipe’s primary teachers have been Edward Carroll, Thomas Stevens, Russell DeVuyst, and Craig Morris.
