David Ewing is the Melbourne Municipal Band and Melbourne Community Orchestra principal trumpet player. He actually plays trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn and on very rare occasions, baritone. As a child he used to listen to his older brother play trumpet and loved the sound. When he was old enough he picked up his brother`s trumpet and found he could play it easily. He went on to study at the Philadelphia Collee of Performing Ars, which is now the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. He studied under Anthony Marchione and Gerard Schwartz. David is a mechanically minded individual, but true to his musical background, he loves to teach music and is a private trumpet instructor. He served for many years as the Band General Manager. David`s experience is extensive and includes playing on a regular basis with the Internatiional Symphonic Wind Orchestra, Utica Symphony, Colgate University Orchestra, Chenango Brass Quintet, Eastern Philharmonic, Space Coast Pops, Melbourne Municipal Band, Swingtime Jazz Band, Sunshine Brass Quintet, Space Coast Winds, Central Florida Winds, Central Florida Lyric Opera and the North Jersey Symphonic Wind Orchestra. He also performs regularly on a freelance basis. David lives in Rockledge with his wife Donna (who plays euphonium and French horn), Maltese dogs Muffin and Gidget, cat Champagne and two fish tanks!
