Dawn Weber

Biography

Dawn Weber started playing the trumpet at age 11. At age 16 she found the North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, NC. That is when she climbed on a greyhound bus and left her home to train as a professional trumpet player.


At NCSA she studied with Raymond Mase who taught at Julliard and would fly down once a week for Dawn’s lessons. He played with Summit Brass, American Brass Quintet, New York Ballet, put out solo recordings, and freelanced all over the world. He is now the chairman of the brass department for Julliard.


After studying both jazz and classical styles at NCSA for four years, she went on to study at the Cleveland Institute of Music where she trained with Michael Sachs, the principal trumpet player of The Cleveland Orchestra. Besides intensive orchestral training, she also took private jazz lessons with Marshall Griffith.


As a competition soloist she took second place at the International Trumpet Guild Solo Competition. In 2000, she was selected 1 of 5 from the world to compete in Bad Sackingen, Germany for the Ellsworth Smith International Trumpet Competition. She moved to the St. Louis area in 1998 and has played for Susan Slaughter and as a sub with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra.
