The Brass Junkies Episode 9: Amy McCabe

Listen via


Andrew & Lance are joined by Amy McCabe to talk about her winning a major military band audition, what it was like to be the featured soloist for Blast while being suspended from the ceiling every night, and about a health scare that helped her to focus and become the world class trumpet player she is today.

Interestingly, Amy went to undergrad planning on being an elementary school librarian! She did not decide to become a professional trumpet player until later. She also touches on the "Chicago approach" to brass playing and what it was like to study with Barbara Butler and Charles Geyer at Northwestern University.

She also offers Jens some words of encouragement!
