Born in Concord, Paul Costanzo began his musical career at the age of nine when he began the study of the trumpet. His early teachers included Natalo Paella, Roger Voisin, and Armando Ghitalla of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. In High School he won the first trumpet position in the International Youth Orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski.

Costanzo was a scholarship student at Julliard where he completed his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Music. Mr. Costanzo has been an active free-lance musician in New York and Boston where his performances have ranged from the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra to Broadway shows.

Among his other interests are the martial arts, in which he holds the rank of 3rd degree black belt in Goshin Jui-Jitso. He has been an instructor to several of Hollywood’s top bodyguards and stuntmen, and has worked as an advisor on feature films.

Mr. Costanzo first performed with the band during the 1989 series at Fruitlands Museum, and he returned with the band for the 1990 season. At that time Mr. Costanzo performed the premiere performance of William M. Toland’s arrangement of Harry James Concerto for Trumpet.
