Pete is an accomplished Broadway pit musician who played Trumpet and Piccolo Trumpet in the original Broadway production of "Les Miserables" and earlier played in the cast recording of "Sondheim". I am fortunate to know and play with such an accomplished musician. Pete leads the trumpet section in the band and can hear the slightest note out of tune or a rhythm out of sync. Pete has been a tremendous asset having the most experience playing with some of the "Greatest Big Band leaders".
