Australian trumpeter Josh Rogan began his musical life at a young age, playing cornet in a local brass band with his family. Since then, he has taken his love of music all over the world, performing in venues such as the Sydney Opera House, Australia; Royal Albert Hall, United Kingdom; Walt Disney Concert Hall, United States of America; Royal Concertgebouw, Netherlands; Shanghai Concert Hall, China; and the Berlin Konzerthaus, Germany.
He has performed with a number of highly renowned ensembles, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and the Principal Brass of the New York Philharmonic; has played with many distinguished conductors including Plácido Domingo, Christoph Eschenbach, and David Zinman; in addition to working with influential composers such as John Williams, Esa-Pekka Salonen, and Matthias Pintscher.
Some other personal musical highlights include playing the Waltzing Matilda Fanfare to open the Australia Day ceremony at Australian Open Tennis- Women’s Final in 2013; travelling to Birmingham Symphony Hall, United Kingdom, to compete in the historic brass band competition, the British Open, with the Wellington Brass Band in 2016; and being invited to perform as the guest alumni soloist with the Melbourne Youth Orchestra for their 50th Anniversary Concert in 2017.
Josh is a graduate of the University of Melbourne, the Australian National Academy of Music, and the Colburn School. When not holding a trumpet in his hands, he may be found running a marathon, practicing another language, following the crypto currency market, or sampling some tasty vegan food.
