The Department of Music presents a Faculty & Friends Concert featuring visiting professor of trumpet Eric Millard with pianist Amy Nungesser.
Millard was formerly the Third/Associate Principal trumpet with the Tallahassee Symphony, and has also performed with the Boise Philharmonic, Ballet Idaho, Pensacola Symphony, Sinfonia Gulf Coast, Northwest Florida Symphony, and Albany Symphony. Millard’s fond interest in chamber music has led him to cofound both the Bluegrass Brass and Garnet and Brass quintets and was a member of the Florida State University Faculty Brass Quintet. Millard has won prizes at the National Trumpet Competition (NTC) with multiple trumpet ensembles.
As a soloist, Millard has won prizes at prestigious competitions such as the International Trumpet Guild (ITG) Solo Competition, NTC, Music Teachers National Association Solo Competition, and the U.S. Army Band National Collegiate Solo Competition and has won concerto competitions at both of his alma maters. Recently, Eric has been a member of ensembles that have been invited to perform at festivals and conferences including the Concert Band Directors National Association Conference, the North Sea and Montreux Jazz Festivals, Florida State Music Teachers Association Conference, and the ITG Conference.
Tickets: $10; $8 for seniors, students, veterans, and UNC Charlotte faculty, staff, and alumni. College of Arts + Architecture majors receive a complimentary ticket through the 49erArtsLink program.
