Guest Artist Recital: Joe Burgstaller

This event is part of UT Brass Day, but is also open to the public.

Called “quite simply, a superstar of the trumpet” by conductor JoAnn Falletta, multi-genre international soloist JOE BURGSTALLER connects with audiences throughout the world with his captivating sound, dazzling virtuosity and engaging personality. Known for his creativity and as a story-teller with his instrument, Joe is a former long-time member and featured trumpeter and arranger with the famed Canadian Brass.

Joe tours worldwide as a soloist (recently including Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Seoul, Taipei, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Winnipeg, Hamburg, Bologna, US Virgin Islands, etc.), as a chamber musician, as a crossover artist, as a guest orchestral musician, and as a masterclass clinician (more than 129 universities and conservatories) including his groundbreaking seminars for all instruments called "Change Your Mind, Change Your Playing®”.

As Associate Professor of Trumpet at Arizona State University, his dynamic studio comprehensively prepares students for the demands of today's music world, focusing on Artistic Development, Versatility, Entrepreneurship and Career Growth. 

Every Monday morning, Burgstaller live-broadcasts his Trumpet Warmup Show to an audience that spans 30+ countries, combining warmup, routine, fundamentals and pedagogy in a format best described as a “Trumpet Talk Show”. 

Joe’s discography includes hit classical solo CDs (License to Thrill and The Virtuoso Trumpet), multiple Top-10 Billboard hits with Canadian Brass, and his crossover CDs (Bach’s Secret Files and Mozart’s Blue Dreams) were Top-50 on JazzRadio charts and the Roots Radio Report (under Paul Simon but right above the Beastie Boys).

Joe Burgstaller is a Yamaha Performing Artist.
