Trumpet tune - Around the Arch
March 2014 Issue
The principal trumpet player for the New York Philharmonic will join the faculty of the Hugh Hodgson School of Music as the William F. and Pamela P. Prokasy Professor in the Arts. Phillip Smith played with the Philharmonic for 36 years. Smith is a graduate of The Juilliard School, where he was still a student when Sir Georg Solti invited him to join the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in January 1975.

Smith will hold the endowed position left vacant by trumpeter Fred Mills, who died in 2009.
