Miles McAllister, Trumpet

Cal State Fullerton Miles-McCallister-Circle

How did you choose your instrument?

I chose my instrument because my dad played trumpet all through college, though not as a major. I figured he could give me a good start.

What piece are you most excited to play this upcoming season? 

Most excited to play Mahler 5.

What have you learned from AYS so far and what are you hoping to gain from AYS in the future?

I have learned what a difference it makes when an ensemble rehearses together regularly and everyone genuinely wants to be there (not always the case in school ensembles or even some professional ones)
Hoping to be exposed to a lot more great literature and to work with other fantastic players and guest artists/conductors.
