Trumpeter, Daniel Hersog, graduated from Capilano University in 2007. Since his time at Capilano, Daniel has had a busy career as a performer, composer and educator. He has performed as a leader at the last three Vancouver International Jazz Festivals, formed a professional big band featuring many Capilano alumni and faculty, toured North America with various musical projects and worked as a music educator for the Burnaby School District.
We are pleased to share the news that Daniel has been accepted into the M.Mus. program in Jazz Composition at the pretigious New England Conservatory in Boston. NEC is widely considered one of the foremost institutions for jazz studies in the world and placement in the graduate program is very competitive. Says Daniel: “ Capilano prepared me for the versatility that is required of the modern day professional musician. My teachers transformed my trumpet playing, mentored my writing and inspired to me to pursue further education.”
