Jared Wallace, trumpet

Jared Wallace is a trumpet performer and teacher in the Southern Ontario Region. Born and raised in the small town of Bristol, New Brunswick, he eventually moved to Thunder Bay, Ontario, and began playing trumpet at the age of 12. He was a rising star in his home town, and eventually decided to pursue musical endeavors both in and outside of the city. He was accepted into the Denis Wick Canadian Wind Orchestra from 2011 – 2013, winning the Denis Wick Most Outstanding Brass Musician Award in 2012. He has had many opportunities to perform with the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra, including performances of Handel’s Zadok the Priest, Stravinsky’s Firebird and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana. Jared was the first winner of the Thunder Bay Symphony Youth Orchestra Concerto Competition. This provided him with the opportunity to perform Johann Nepomuk Hummel’s Trumpet Concerto in Eb with the Youth Orchestra and members of the TBSO. Jared is an active performer and teacher in the southern Ontario region, now based out of London, Ontario. Teaching both privately and through multiple music schools, he actively enjoys teaching in addition to performing. Jared holds an HBMus from Lakehead University and is in his final year of the MMus Program at Western University, focusing on Contemporary Trumpet Repertoire under the direction of Dr. Aaron Hodgson.
