WFIU’s artist for the month of January is Edmund Cord, professor of music at the IU Jacobs School of Music.

Cord received his degree in trumpet performance from Indiana University in 1972. He was principal trumpet of the Israel Philharmonic, Bangkok Symphony, and Utah Symphony; he performs frequently with the Indianapolis Symphony, the Indianapolis Chamber Brass Choir, and Broadway touring companies. He has been the guest principal trumpet with symphony orchestras across the country and has performed with artists as diverse as Doc Severinsen, Ella Fitzgerald, Henry Mancini, Marvin Hamlisch, and the Moody Blues.

Cord has served as director of the Bangkok Trumpet and Brass Festival. He was brass coach and trumpet faculty of the Asian Youth Orchestra. He is a charter member and frequent contributor to the International Trumpet Guild, for which he writes about the trumpet music of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Cord coaches and conducts various ensembles at IU. He is director of the Indiana University Brass Choir, and his former students have performance and teaching positions in orchestras, colleges, and service bands all over the United States and the world.

He has presented master classes, clinics, and workshops in brass performance in Australia, Israel, and throughout Asia and North America. His former teachers include some of the most important brass players of the twentieth century: Max Woodbury, Herbert Mueller, Louis Davidson, Charles Gorham, Thomas Stevens, and Arnold Jacobs.
