Performing since 1977, Trinkle Brass Works continues to delight audiences with virtuosity and adventurous programming with a sense of humor, hallmarks of every Trinkle Brass Works performance. From Tielman Susato to Astor Piazzolla and from J.S. Bach to Claude Bolling, presentations are uniquely blended with works from the Renaissance and baroque eras using authentic period instruments to newly commissioned works performed on modern instruments.
Over the past 25 years Trinkle and Burkett have worked with elementary, middle, and high school students through artists-in-education programs in Missouri, Kansas, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Virginia. They have also served as clinicians for workshops focused on preparing artists to participate in state artists-in-education programs for the Wisconsin Arts Board and Department of Public Instruction. Additional experience has included the training of teachers in various aspects of music education including: artists in the classroom, commissioning music for ensembles, and curriculum design for effective arts residencies.
