The 48th Annual International Trumpet Guild Conference
Session: Celebrating Under-Represented Groups
Dr. Luke Spence enjoys a multi-faceted career as a performer, educator, and recording artist. He is the Visiting Assistant Professor of Trumpet at the SUNY Potsdam Crane School of Music, second trumpet of the South Florida Symphony, and a member of the chamber groups Anima Brass and the Potsdam Brass Quintet. Praised by Fanfare Magazine for his “great artistry “, labeled “exquisite” by the ITG Journal, and hailed as “a true expert in phrasing” by the NACWPI Journal, Spence’s debut solo album “20th Century Art Songs” offers a fresh approach to the genre of vocal transcriptions and highlights repertoire seldom explored by instrumentalists. A firm believer that music has the power to be an agent of social change, Spence is a founding Board of Directors member of the International Pride Orchestra, a non-profit charity orchestra that brings together LGBTQIA+ musicians from around the world to present concerts, celebrate community, and raise funds for LGBTQIA+ causes. He is honored to be a performing artist for both S.E. Shires Co. and Denis Wick Products.
