Colin Oldberg is the former Principal Trumpet of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, where he performed under Maestro Edo de Waart. During his time there, he had the pleasure to perform several solos with the orchestra, including the Haydn Trumpet Concerto for a subscription concert. He also performed Joe Hisaishi's Solo Trumpet version of Laputa: Castle in the Sky, which can be seen here!! -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNHfyPSvqwc
As a teacher, Colin was on the faculty at the Hong Kong Academy for the Performing Arts (2011-12), and the Boston University Tanglewood Institute (http://www.bu.edu/cfa/tanglewood/) (2012-13). He is equally at home teaching children and adults of all ages and levels of ability. Colin firmly believes that absolutely anyone can learn to play the trumpet well, it just takes correct practice and perseverance.
Colin frequently performs across the Front Range with the Boulder Philharmonic, the Colorado Ballet, the Colorado Springs Philharmonic, Colorado Opera, and the Colorado Symphony.
