Barry joined the Chicago Brass Band January 2017.  Growing up in the Philadelphia area, his early musical influences included a great high school band teacher and mentor, as well the opportunity to study with Michael Buglio (West Point Band), Angelo Tulumello (Buffalo Philharmonic) and Gilbert Johnson (Philadelphia Orchestra).

After his 1st year of college, Barry suspended his education for 3 years to tour with a Christian vocal/instrumental group named “Eternity” performing hundreds of concerts a year in churches, schools, and civic auditoriums throughout the United States and Latin America.

Recently retired after a career as a sales training and enablement leader with technology companies such as Motorola, Sprint and UTStarcom, Barry is enjoying the freedom to once again focus on developing his playing and is currently studying with Dr. Terry Schwartz.
