Philip Smith Signature Series-My Songs of Songs and A Gaelic Blessing
Score and Full Band Set for My Song of Songs and A Gaelic Blessing (Trumpet Solos) arranged by Joseph Turrin and Mark Freeh respectively.
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.
