The Department of Music presents a Faculty & Friends Concert. Dr. Brad Ulrich (trumpet) and Dr. Leonidas Lagrimas (piano), both from Western Carolina University, will join UNC Charlotte trumpet professor Dr. Eric Millard for a program of music for two trumpets and piano, featuring works by Kevin McKee, Erik Morales, Astor Piazzolla, Joseph Horovitz, Bruce Frazier, and Joseph Turrinn.

Eric Millard is the Assistant Professor of Trumpet at UNC Charlotte. Millard regularly performs with the Charlotte Symphony and was formerly the Third/Associate Principal trumpet with the Tallahassee Symphony. Millard has also performed with the Charlotte Ballet, Opera Carolina, Boise Philharmonic, Ballet Idaho, Pensacola Symphony, Sinfonia Gulf Coast, Northwest Florida Symphony, and Albany Symphony.  Millard’s fond interest in chamber music has led him to cofound both the Bluegrass Brass and Garnet and Brass quintets and he currently performs with the UNC Charlotte Faculty Brass Quintet. In addition to brass quintets, Millard has won prizes at the National Trumpet Competition (NTC) and performed at the International Trumpet Guild Conference with multiple trumpet ensembles. Playing in a wide range of styles, Millard has also performed in numerous shows, including most recently, the national tour of “Aladdin the Musical."
