Steven’s main musical interest besides playing the trumpet is arranging music. He has scored nearly 200 brass arrangements for The Philadelphia Brass, Delaware Symphony, and Ocean City Pops Orchestra, as well as works for various string quartets, choirs, and organists around the Philadelphia region. He received his undergraduate degree from Temple University and his master’s degree from Manhattan School of Music.
In his spare time, when not arranging or composing music, Steve enjoys watching foreign films, frequenting modern art museums, and never-quite-finishing crossword puzzles.
