"Average Joe?!" I asked incredulously. "Yes, I..." "Average Joe???!!!" I asked, again stupefied. When it comes to the trumpet, Patrick Oliverio is anything but average. Solo cornetist w/ the Fountain City Brass Band, awarded first place in the graduate division of the 2017 National Trumpet Competition, highly sought-out teacher and performer in the Kansas City metro area. These are but a few of the well-deserved accolades Patrick has earned in his career. When he's not producing videos of himself performing 6-part ensemble pieces in stairwells using the https://apps.apple.com/us/app/acapella-from-picplaypost/id924635678 (Acapella app), he writes in his blog on topics such as meditation, parenting and performing, and much more. Find him on the web at patrickoliverio.com. Enjoy the interview!
