René Shapiro is the Baltimore Symphony’s Assistant Principal Trumpet whose jovial, extroverted playing takes the lead in virtually every BSO Pops concert. Since 2004, he has put the brassiness in the big high solo parts for Jack Everly, Paquito D’Rivera, Al Jarreau, John Williams, and Burt Bacharach shows, to name a few. He has even sounded the “Call to the Post” to kick off the Preakness at Pimlico. He will be joined by Community College of Baltimore County faculty, Dr. Teodora Adzharova.
