Meet Pink Martini time! Bulgarian trumpeter Mihail Iossifov (to us he’s “Misho”) has been lending his bright copper-toned trumpeting acrobatics to Pink Martini since 2014. Following in his grandfather’s footsteps, Misho picked up the trumpet at a young age and studied jazz performance at the National Music College in Sofia. Since graduation, he has been in high demand as a stage and studio musician across Europe, and also is an accomplished arranger and composer. We feel darn lucky that he chooses to make time for us in his overflowing calendar. Our primary trumpeter in Europe (and sometimes beyond), Misho was introduced to us by his friend, Pink Martini trombonist Antonis Andreou, and these two powerhouse horn players are the dynamic duo of our band, dazzling our global audiences with their exploits for the better part of a decade. We hope we can convince them to tour with us for many decades more!

I would like to see a concert of Louis Armstrong
