Trevor Cameron Barroero has returned from performing with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra

UA Fred Fox School of Music percussion senior Trevor Cameron Barroero, winner of the Pacific Region International Summer Music Academy's concerto competition, has returned from performing as a guest percussionist/timpanist with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Maestro Arthur Arnold.

A Flinn Scholar, Barroero is currently completing his final year of undergraduate studies at the University of Arizona as he pursues a Bachelor of Music degree in percussion performance. Barroero said about his extraordinary experience, “My performance with the Moscow Symphony exceeded every one of my expectations and I cannot wait to return to Russia some day soon to perform with the group again.”

Trevor is currently a student of Professors Norman Weinberg and Morris Palter at the Fred Fox School of Music. Weinberg proudly commented, “Trevor is a wonderfully talented student who is a joy to coach. Along with his natural ability, he is incredibly focused and dedicated to being the best musician he can possibly be. And on top of that, he’s one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet! His recent successes are just the tip of the iceberg of his future in the arts.” Weinberg is retiring from the University of Arizona this spring, so this is a great addition to his list of successful student accomplishments.

Trevor travelled to Russia on November 26th and rehearsed for several days with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra before their concert on December 1st. He was a guest percussionist/timpanist in an all-Tchaikovsky performance under the baton of Maestro Arthur Arnold at the Grand Hall Moscow Conservatory. The program featured “Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture,” Violin Concerto (with soloist Kristóf Baráti), and Symphony No. 1, "Winter Dreams."

A native of Tucson, Barroero has been the gold medalist of over half-a-dozen concerto competitions. He has performed as a featured soloist in Canada and with nearly every major orchestra in Southern Arizona including the Tucson Symphony Orchestra, the Tucson Pops, the Civic Orchestra of Tucson, the Arizona Symphony Orchestra, and the Tucson Philharmonia Youth Orchestra. Trevor has been a featured guest performer on the Tucson Morning Blend television show and on the KXCI “Locals Only” radio broadcast.

Barroero was a selected participant of the Juilliard Summer Percussion Seminar, the Pacific Region International Summer Music Academy, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra Institute, and for two consecutive years, he was a participant at the Aspen Music Festival and School. Trevor was the winner of the annual mock audition at the Washburgh Timpani Seminar in 2016 and runner-up of the Cloyd Duff Timpani Masterclass mock audition in 2015.

A founding member of the percussion trio, Lineage Percussion, Trevor Barroero made history in May of 2016 as his ensemble won the bronze medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, becoming the first percussionist, in the 43-year history of the competition, to be selected as a senior-division finalist. Before this, the trio was a semifinalist of both the Coleman Chamber Competition and the 2015 Fischoff Competition and was a third-place winner at the Percussive Arts Society’s Chamber Competition. Endorsed as educational artists with Mike Balter Mallets and Remo Drumheads, Lineage Percussion has presented clinics for elementary schools, high schools, retirement communities, and private organizations around the state of Georgia.
