Trumpet and Flügelhorn

Richard Meyer is a recent addition to the band on trumpet/flügelhorn. He has been a fixture in the central Pennsylvania brass music scene since first donning the lederhosen for a Little German Band gig in 1977. He has since moved beyond lederhosen and into black shirts. He has played with the State College Dance Band, the Keystone Society of Swing Big Band, the Les Shaw Sextet, the Valley Jazz Orchestra, the Little German Band, the State College Municipal Band, and the Nittany Valley Symphony Orchestra. He has also played professionally in the Washington D.C. area (and unprofessionally in countless other places). When not playing the trumpet he dabbles in fluid dynamics and acoustics.
