Bachelor of Music in Trumpet Performance – Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music

Garrett Folger began his musical journey at a very young age, exploring with his father all different styles of music from classical to jazz to different world musics. His father’s background in music and teaching has inspired Garrett’s passion for performing and teaching. Garrett continued this exploration throughout his studies at the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music, where he received his Bachelor of Music in Trumpet Performance, graduating Summa Cum Laude and principally studying with Jack Sutte, John Brndiar, and Anthony Fuoco.

Garrett enjoys performing with a wide variety of musical ensembles such as the Skatch Anderson Orchestra, the Dan Zola Orchestra, and Sammy DeLeon y su Orquesta. He has composed music for numerous ensembles and loves the thrill of premiering new music. Notable performances include with the Ars Nova Chamber Musicians performing concerti by Torelli and Jachinni as the featured soloist, and the Baldwin Wallace Brass Choir performing his arrangement of Wayne Shorter’s Infant Eyes, as well as performances at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., and at Carnegie Hall in NYC.
