Mike Truesdell | Percussion
Percussionist Mike Truesdell’s solo and chamber-music opportunities have brought him across the United States, Europe and Japan. As a soloist, he was the 2nd-prize winner of the 2010 TROMP International Percussion Competition in the Netherlands, and continues to maintain an active schedule of solo recitals, chamber music, and orchestral performances. In addition, Mike has performed with numerous ensembles, including the New York City Ballet, New York New Music Ensemble, Lucerne Festival Ensemble conducted by Pierre Boulez, and with members of the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera, Chamber Music Society (New York), ICE and Alarm Will Sound. In late 2011, he was featured as a soloist and ensemble member in a concert celebrating the late Elliott Carter’s 103rd and final birthday, with the composer in attendance, and recently performed for Charles Wuorinen’s 75th birthday, with the composer conducting.
