Andrew Dunn studied at the Royal Academy of Music and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
Andrew has performed with orchestras and ensembles on three continents. These have included some of Europe and North America’s most renowned ensembles, notably on recordings with orchestras such as the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Royal Flemish Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Philharmonic Orchestra. While in Canada he made numerous radio broadcasts with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, including taking part in a South American tour. Throughout his career, he has worked with some of the world’s most prestigious conductors and soloists.
Recent solo performances have included two North American premieres, and Luciano Berio’s Sequenza X. Future performances include orchestral recordings with the London Mozart Players and solo recordings of Concerti by English Composers.
Formerly a Lecturer of Trumpet at the London College of Music and Chair of Brass and Professor of Trumpet at McGill University – Schulich School of Music – Montreal, Andrew has organised masterclasses and collaborations with artists including Joseph Alessi, Jeff Nelsen, David Kirk, Marco Blaauw, Thomas Hooten, Andrew Bain, Kristian Steenstrup and James Gourlay, and has developed concert projects with the Royal Northern College of Music and music institutions in Québec. Andrew is both a founding member and Artistic Director of Québec Brass Ensemble and Director of McGill Symphonic Brass.
Andrew’s research interests cross-pollinate solo performance with performance health and pedagogy. He was awarded an ARAM in May 2014 by the Royal Academy of Music for services to music.
