Nick Hill has been performing trumpet for over 12 years, and has always considered the trumpet among the most beautiful sounds. He is currently a student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison working towards dual degrees in music performance and communication arts, where he studies under Jean Laurenz. He was awarded a scholarship in the name of longtime former trumpet professor Don Whitaker, and prior to beginning his studies at UW-Madison was named exemplary soloist at the WSMA State Solo & Ensemble festival for his performance of Joseph Haydn’s trumpet concerto.
Nick loves listening to music and is always searching for new sounds, cultivating a keen interest in championing unconventional and lesser known works in the repertoire. Nick has maintained himself as a stylistically versatile musician, having played in band, orchestral, jazz, pit orchestra, and chamber settings. His current projects include playing and arranging for Mariachi Monarcas de Milwaukee and the UW-Madison Trumpet Ensemble.
