About Paul Tingley, DMA
Paul Tingley recently received his DMA from the Eastman School of Music, having studied with Douglas Prosser and James Thompson. He received his BM from the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam. Paul’s musical inspiration has been as a member of Arts Empowering Life and its world-renowned choir Gloriae Dei Cantores under the batons of Elizabeth Patterson and Richard K. Pugsley. While in the choir, Paul performed in concert halls and churches in twenty-four different countries and sang on the annual Boston Pops Christmas concert tours from 1995– 2005. Paul was involved in over forty commercial recordings with the group either as a member of the choir, a trumpet soloist, or serving as assistant producer. Paul has performed under the baton of John Williams and Keith Lockhart with the Boston Pops, Phillipe Entremont and the Munich Symphony Orchestra, Stephen Cleobury, George Guest, and Samuel Adler.

As an instrumental performer, Paul was a member of the Spirit of America Band since its inception in the mid-1970s and traveled to Canada, Australia, South Korea, and South Africa. While with the group, Paul played trumpet and assisted in leading workshops with students both domestically and internationally. The band was the silver medalist at the WAMSB competition in Calgary in 2000 and the gold medal winner at the same competition in South Korea in 2006. Paul has been a member of the Gabriel V brass ensemble, performed on multiple recordings, and served as the producer on two recent recordings, Christmas in Brass and For the Beauty of the Earth. The ensemble also performed at the 900th Anniversary celebration of the Basilica at San Marco in Venice. While at Eastman Paul played in the Wind Ensemble as a member of the section and as the principal. With the Wind Ensemble he shared the stage with the Canadian Brass. Paul also played principal trumpet under the baton of Leonard Slatkin in the fall of 2019 with the Eastman Philharmonia in a concert of the music of distinguished Eastman alumni Jeff Beal.
