A native New Mexican, Brynn Marchiando discovered the trumpet when she was seven years old, thanks to her grandfather, with whom she played duets as a young girl. Brynn received a bachelor of music degree in jazz performance from the University of Denver Lamont School of Music where she studied with jazz trumpet great Alan Hood. In 2005, Brynn won runner-up at the International Trumpet Guild Conference Jazz Competition in Bangkok, Thailand.
Following her undergraduate studies, Mrs. Marchiando moved to Boston to study with Charles Schlueter—former Principal Trumpet of the Boston Symphony Orchestra—at The New England Conservatory of Music and received her master of music degree in trumpet performance. While in Boston, Brynn performed with the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra, Boston Civic Orchestra, Concord Chorale, Nashua Symphony Orchestra, Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra, and was a regular substitute with the Albany Symphony Orchestra.
Upon graduating, Mrs. Marchiando attended the Tanglewood Music Center in 2008 as a fellow with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. After the fellowship, she won a position as 3rd Associate Principal Trumpet with the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra. Mrs. Marchiando played with the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra for three years until the orchestra filed Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in April 2011. (The New Mexico Philharmonic has risen from the ashes of its former orchestra.) Mrs. Marchiando is the Principal Trumpet of the Santa Fe Concert Association, Opera Southwest, and acting Principal Trumpet of the Santa Fe Symphony. She has also performed with The Santa Fe Opera and the Chatter Ensemble.
