Luke Balslov, a native of Long Island, New York, regularly performs around the country on both modern and baroque trumpets. In New York, Luke received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in music performance at Stony Brook University, studying privately with Kevin Cobb. He began baroque trumpet studies with Kris Kwapis and later attended the American Bach Soloists Academy in San Francisco in 2016.
