The New York Philharmonic bids a fond farewell to Principal Trumpet Philip Smith, who is retiring after 36 years in the Orchestra. Here is one last video featuring the trumpet legend and the Philharmonic's trumpet section.
The New York Philharmonic will honor its renowned Principal Trumpet in "A Celebration of Phil Smith." The program, conducted by Mr. Smith and Bramwell Tovey on July 5, 2014 will feature the New York Philharmonic Brass and Percussion Ensemble, and there may be a few surprises in store.
Featuring: Associate Principal Trumpet Matthew Muckey, Ethan Bensdorf, Thomas V. Smith, and Principal Trumpet Philip Smith
