CALEB HUDSON, TRUMPET
Caleb Hudson, trumpet, is the newest member of Canadian Brass, having graduated from the Juilliard School in 2012 with a Bachelor’s and Master’s of Music degree. Acclaimed by The New York Times as “brilliantly stylish,” Caleb made his solo debut with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center performing Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 2. He appears world-wide with the Canadian Brass, in addition to solo performances with artists such as Vladimir Feltsman and recently, the Israel Philharmonic.
Caleb is only the second trumpeter in the history of the Serge & Olga Koussevitizy Young Artist Awards to win First Prize against all other woodwind and brass instruments. In addition, he has won first place at the National Trumpet Competition multiple times, and has performed with the New York City Ballet, New World Symphony, Symphony in C, Jupiter Symphony Chamber Players, New York Trumpet Ensemble, and the American Brass Quintet. An avid baroque musician, Caleb also performs with notable early music ensembles, including Philharmonia Baroque, American Bach Soloists, and the Trinity Baroque Orchestra. Caleb is an alumnus of Ensemble ACJW, a fellowship program of Carnegie Hall that promotes arts advocacy, community outreach, and music education. Native to Lexington, Kentucky, Caleb currently resides in Brooklyn with his wife, Amanda.
