Philip Smith Signature Series-Joshua Swings the Battle
Score and Full Band Set for Joshua Swings The Battle (Trumpet Solo) by Stephen Bulla.
One of the finest players ever to first buzz a mouthpiece in The Salvation Army band program is Philip Smith. Introduced to the cornet by his father, the legendary cornet soloist and bandmaster, Derek Smith, Philip built his musical foundation through Salvation Army band and music camp programs, then refined his skills at New York’s prestigious Juilliard School of Music.
Since his graduation from Juilliard, Philip has established himself as one of the world’s finest trumpet players, first with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and then with the New York Philharmonic.
This Philip Smith Signature Series features music performed by Philip with the New York Staff Band of The Salvation Army on the critically acclaimed recording My Song of Songs.
