Benoit Glazer, Trumpet(back to musicians page)
Benoit Glazer started his professional musical career in 1981. A versatile musician, he taught at McGill University’s jazz department for ten years starting in 1986, and he appears on hundreds of CD’s, sound tracks, TV shows and galas as a trumpet player, composer, arranger, conductor, and occasionally as a drummer or percussionist.
More recently, Benoit has been the trumpeter, musical director, and occasional drummer (even playing bass on several occasions) at “La Nouba”, the Cirque du Soleil show in Orlando. Over eight million people have seen the show since its inception in 1998. He is also very active in the community, having founded the Timucua Arts Foundation, a non-profit that offers free concerts/art happenings in Orlando’s most unique venue, and the Orlando Brass Festival, which benefits local artistic causes.
