Classic FM announced their 30 up and coming, “Rising Stars” musicians of 2023. Two Trumpet Players were on this list:
In 2012, at the age of 15, British trumpeter Lucy Humphris won the presigious London Symphony Orchestra Brass Academy Candide Award. She graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in 2019, and that same year gave the premiere of the one-woman show The Secret Life of Trumpets at the Southbank Centre’s ‘Imagine’ children’s festival. Humphris released her debut album Obscurus in February 2023.
British trumpeter Matilda Lloyd won first prize in the Eric Aubier International Trumpet Competition in Rouen, France, and has since appeared as a soloist throughout Europe, South Africa and the US. Lloyd’s debut album was released in 2018, and her sophomore album Casta Diva, which sees her performing operatic arias transcribed for trumpet, is due to be released in April 2023.
