This episode of podmissum features Performing Arts Department Chair Jim Cifelli. Mr. Cifelli was born in Yorktown Heights, New York. A seasoned post-bop/hard bop trumpet player, his musical career spans decades. His musical education formally began in music camp during the summer of fourth grade when he was given his first trumpet to play, though it was said his passion for the instrument was evident even as a toddler. Catching the music bug, he went on to study music at University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, and eventually enrolled at New York University where he received a degree in jazz and commercial music. He currently serves as the director of Performing Arts at Trinity, a position he’s held since 2012. This conversation with Mr. Cifelli took place at Trinity in the autumn of 2015.
