Brandon Ridenour

Forbes Organ Series

Heralded as “the trumpet of the future,” Brandon Ridenour’s wide-ranging activities as a soloist and chamber musician – paired with his passion for composing and arranging – are evident in his versatile performances and unique repertoire. Ridenour’s expansive afternoon recital will include trumpet solos and pieces accompanied by organist Katya Gotsdiner-McMahan – returning to the Forbes Pipe Organ – and selections with Peter Dugan on piano.

“(Ridenour) sailed through the impossible aerial solo role with technique to burn.
– New York Classical Review
