About the Guest Artist
Originally from Denver Colorado, free-lance trumpeter Greg Gisbert has firmly established himself as one of the most sought-after and well-respected artists in jazz today. He has recorded and performed many with jazz greats including Buddy Rich, Woody Herman, Clark Terry, Horace Silver, Maynard Ferguson, Bobby Shew, John Fedchock, Harry Connick Jr., Jim McNeely, Toshiko Akiyoshi, and Nancy Wilson. Greg is one of the founding members of the group Convergence, as well as the founder of the Greg Gisbert Syndicate, both based in Denver.
Gisbert is a frequent invited guest with an array of ensembles, including the Maria Schneider and Vanguard Jazz Orchestras, the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, The Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. A gifted and generous educator, Greg has served on the faculty at the University of Miami, Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts, University of Denver, Manhattan School of Music and Juilliard School of Music, and he is the Artist Faculty in Residence at the University of Northern Colorado starting in the Fall of 2017.
