Merrimack Valley Philharmonic Orchestra Holiday Concert

2:30pm EST December 8, 2013

Brendan McGuirk, Trumpet & the Merrimack Valley Ringers


Brendan discovered the joy of playing the trumpet in the third grade.  Under the guidance of his trumpet teacher and friend, Jay Daly, he has matured as a player.  In addition, Brendan has been strongly influenced by his beloved high school musical director, Anthony DiBartolomeo, who has helped Brendan discover the thrill of playing challenging music selections.  Brendan is presently a junior at Timberlane Regional High School and has participated in the 2012 and 2013 NH All-State Music Festival (concert band), and 2013 NH All-State jazz band. He sits first chair in the TRHS Orchestra and TRHS Wind Ensemble, and was inducted into the Tri-M Music Honor Society in the spring of 2013. He also plays in the Timberlane Community Band and Timberlane Community Jazz Band.


Merrimack Valley Ringer’s Artistic Director is Karen E. Leonard. As Minister of Music at West Chelmsford United Methodist Church, she directs a graded choral and handbell program of six choirs and also serves as organist. A Past National President of the American Guild of English Handbell Ringers (now known as Handbell Musicians of America), Karen has been very active in event planning and chairs the annual National Master Series Classes for the Handbell Musicians of America, which take place in February in Tucson, AZ.
