Riley Giampaolo joined the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra in the Fall of 2016. Prior to joining the ISO, Giampaolo studied at the New England Conservatory with James Markey. While in school, Giampaolo spent two summers with the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival in Rendsburg, Germany.
Riley has performed and recorded with both the Boston and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestras. Additionally, in 2013 he was named the winner of the International Trombone Association’s George Roberts Bass Trombone Solo Competition.
“I’ve always loved how easy it is to make a beautiful sound on my Edwards, I never have to worry about the sound getting too bright on the loud end or losing its color on the soft end. It just blows freely and sounds great. I also think it blends wonderfully in the orchestra, making the job much easier.”
