Principal Trumpet Manny Laureano, who joined the Minnesota Orchestra in 1981, has performed solos in all the Orchestra’s concert series and served as an assistant conductor during the 2005-06 season. In 2003 he premiered Stephen Paulus’ Concerto for Two Trumpets and Orchestra, which was written for him and Doc Severinsen, who was then the Orchestra’s principal pops conductor. His other solos with the Orchestra have included Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto, Copland’s Quiet City, Clarke’s Southern Cross, Vizzutti’s Compadre, Hertel’s Concerto a cinque in D major, Bach’s Second Brandenburg Concerto, and concertos by Arutiunian and Tomasi.

With bands and orchestras throughout the five-state area, Laureano is in great demand as a soloist, clinician and conductor. With his wife, Claudette, he serves as co-artistic director of the Minnesota Youth Symphonies. He is also entering his fourth season as music director of the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra. In 2006 he led a series of Minnesota Orchestra Young People’s Concerts, ¡Viva Latino!
