Orchestral Repetoire

Andrew McCandless

Andrew McCandless has held the position of principal trumpet with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra since 1999. A native of Louisville, Kentucky, he began playing the trumpet at age nine, focusing on marching band and jazz until his first experience playing classical music at the Youth Performing Arts School in Louisville. Subsequently, he studied the trumpet at Boston University and the Eastman School of Music. At age 20 and in his junior year of college, he was offered his first orchestral position as coprincipal trumpet of the Savannah Symphony.

Building upon his orchestral experience, Andrew left Savannah for appointments with the Kansas City Symphony as associate principal trumpet, the Buffalo Philharmonic as principal trumpet, and the San Francisco Symphony as associate principal trumpet.
