Brian Shaw

Brian Shaw is Assistant Professor of Trumpet and Jazz Studies at Louisiana State University and is Co-Principal Trumpet of the Dallas Wind Symphony under the direction of Maestro Jerry Junkin.

As a Baroque trumpet player, Brian has recorded a CD titled Virtuoso Concertos for Clarino including works by Michael Haydn, F.X. Richter, and others on period instruments, accompanied by an orchestra comprised of New York’s finest period instrumentalists. In its review, Early Music America declares that “Shaw's tone is beautiful, and his playing unfailingly musical… His is a voice that will make a major mark on Baroque trumpet playing.” He has performed on Baroque trumpet throughout North America, including New York (Trinity Church Wall Street, Clarion Society, Bach Vespers at Holy Trinity, Grand Tour Orchestra, and St. Thomas Church), Boston (Boston Early Music Festival), Santa Fe (Pro Musica), and Nashville (Music City Baroque).
