Dave Chisholm

Dave Chisholm is a trumpet player and composer who currently lives in Rochester, NY. In the fall of 2010 he started work on his DMA at the Eastman School of Music. He has his bachelor and masters degrees from the University of Utah.

His second full-length album “Calligraphy” was released in December of 2011. It combines post-rock textures with jazz improvisation.

His first album “Radioactive” came out June of 2010 and features 5 of his new big-band compositions. It is inspired largely by comic books, apparently.

Dave exclusively plays an Adams A4 trumpet in raw brass.
