"Like being in a well written play, in chamber music we communicate to the audience through conversation and drama. I find my role in this art form is shaped by the character of each instrument. In listening to the dialogue of my fellow musicians, I am inspired to find my voice and use it compellingly to create an emotional narrative."

Michael Brozick, trumpet
