Trumpet, Soprano and Harp
Illumine Trio is led by trumpeter Chris O’Hara from Alliance Brass and Synergy Brass, plus soprano and harp – an unusual combination, but a lovely one!
Chris has toured for Allied several times most recently with Alliance Brass, and some season’s ago, with Synergy Brass. He knows how to please a community concert-style audience.
Chris also knows how to assemble a high-quality ensemble and has done so with Illumine. Intended to brighten, enlighten and light up, Illumine’s goal is to perform beautiful music beautifully. Whether that is through Renaissance or Classical or Pops Standards, Illumine will leave its audiences feeling as if they have been uplifted by virtuosity, grace, style and beauty.
