Lucas Lipari-Mayer ’17 updates us: “Since graduating from CalArts, I won a permanent position as Solo Trumpet for the renowned Ensemble InterContemporain, created by Pierre Boulez in Paris. I also won the First and the Public Prize of the Città di Porcia International Italian Trumpet Competition and came as a Semi-Finalist of the ARD Competition held in Munich. Besides working full time—whether with the ensemble or different orchestras and bands—I teach regularly in Paris, and twice a year lead master classes and concerts in Korea. I’m also part of the LA-based Carillon Quartet composed of four CalArts Trumpet alumni. All of this couldn’t have been done without my teachers and training at CalArts, for which I am thankful every day.”
