Performer (trumpet)

Has been a member of the New York musical community since 2003, when he moved to the city after graduating Oberlin Conservatory. Evans enjoys working in wide range of areas in modern music and has therefore been working to greatly broaden the expressive potential of his instrument. Current ensembles include the Zebulon trio, the Peter Evans Quintet, the collaborative trio Pulverize the Sound (with Tim Dahl and Mike Pride), and Rocket Science, (with Sam Pluta, Craig Taborn and Evan Parker). Evans has been performing and recording solo trumpet music since 2003 and is widely recognized as a leading voice in that field. He has been commissioned by the International Contemporary Ensemble, Yarn/Wire, the Donaueschingen Musiktage Festival, the Jerome Foundation’s Emerging Artist Program and is a 2014 Artist-in-Residence at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, NY. He has presented and/or performed his music at many major international festivals and has toured his own groups extensively in Europe, Canada and the United States. In 2011 Peter Evans founded his recording label More is More Records which has released several highly acclaimed albums. 2014 saw release of the PE Quintet’s "Destination: VOID", Pulverize the Sound’s eponymous debut, and a new collection of solo trumpet music.
