Going Acapella, The Oxymoronic Career as Trumpet Soloist, Finding Zen in Performance and Much More w/ Patrick Oliverio.

“Average Joe?!” I asked incredulously.

“Yes, I…”

“Average Joe???!!!” I asked, again stupefied.

When it comes to the trumpet, Patrick Oliverio is anything but average.

Solo cornetist w/ the Fountain City Brass Band, awarded first place in the graduate division of the 2017 National Trumpet Competition, highly sought-out teacher and performer in the Kansas City metro area.

These are but a few of the well-deserved accolades Patrick has earned in his career.

When he’s not producing videos of himself performing 6-part ensemble pieces in stairwells using the Acapella app, he writes in his blog on topics such as meditation, parenting and performing, and much more.
