André Wickenheiser’s sound is all his own. Whether it’s the sound of his trumpet or his compositional style, it is immediately recognizable.
Calgary-based trumpeter André Wickenheiser began his musical studies at Mount Royal University, where he completed an Artist Diploma in jazz performance. From there, he went on to finish both a Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree in jazz performance at McGill University in Montreal.
André is quickly making a name for himself as one of the top jazz trumpet players in Calgary and Alberta. He is an enthusiastic educator on the music faculty as a trumpet instructor at the University of Calgary, Ambrose University, and the Mount Royal Conservatory. You can find André performing with groups including the Canadian National Jazz Orchestra, Decidedly Jazz Danceworks, the Esteban Herrera quintet/septet, and VOLK.
Joining André are Carsten Rubeling on trombone, Mark Dejong on tenor saxophone, Jon Day on piano, Steve Shepard on upright bass, and Jon May on drums.
