Allen Vizzutti

Equally at home in a multitude of musical idioms, Allen Vizzutti has visited 30 countries and every state in the union to perform with a rainbow of artists and ensembles including Chick Corea, Doc Severinsen, the NBC Tonight Show Band, the Airmen of Note, the Army Blues, Chuck Mangione, Woody Herman, Japanís NHK Symphony Orchestra, the Budapest Symphony Orchestra, and the Kosei Wind Orchestra. Performing as a classical and jazz artist, often in the same evening, he has appeared as guest soloist in illustrious venues all over the world, and has made many recordings, including Trumpet Summit and Skyrocket from Summit Recordings, Emerald Concerto and other Gems with the Budapest Symphony Orchestra, Vizzutti plays Vizzutti, and Vizzutti and Soli On Tour and High Class Brass all De Haske recordings. Also available are Baroque and Beyond (Sony), The Carnival of Venus(Summit Recordings) and A Trumpeterís Dream (Ludwig Music Publishing).

As Artist in Residence, Allen has taught at the Eastman School of Music, the Banff Center for the Performing Arts, the Trompeten Akademie of Bremen and many other state universities. His extensive treatise, The Allen Vizzutti Trumpet Method, published by Alfred Music Publishing, has become a standard work for trumpet study world-wide. He has published numerous jazz band compositions: at the world premier of his Emerald Trumpet Concerto with the Syracuse N.Y. Symphony, Allenís writing was described in review: "The Emerald sparkles!Öa vivacious treatment which speaks well for both his dramatic instinct and technical prowess as a composer."

While growing up in Montana, Allen was taught by his father, a self taught musician and trumpet player, until he left home to attend the Eastman School of Music. There he earned a Bachelor of Music, Master of Music and a Performerís Certificate, a chair in the faculty brass quintet, and the only Artistís Diploma ever awarded a wind player in Eastmanís 77 year history. While living in Los Angeles during the 80s, Allen performed on 100 motion picture soundtracks such as Back to the Future and Star Trek, and countless TV shows and commercials.
