Thomas Siders



A native of Champaign, IL, Tom Siders grew up in a musical family. He began playing the piano at age six and the trumpet at age ten. Mr. Siders was fortunate to have terrific trumpet instruction throughout middle school and high school, studying with Michael Allen, Sal Percoco, Ray Sasaki, and the late Dr. Michael Ewald. He pursued further study with Professor Sasaki at the University of Texas at Austin, and graduated with high honors in 2007. Although his first love was jazz, Mr. Siders decided to shift his focus to orchestral trumpet playing. He attended Rice University's Shepherd School of Music, where he studied with Marie Speziale. After receiving his master's degree in 2009, he joined the New World Symphony in Miami Beach. Mr. Siders was a Tanglewood Music Center fellow in 2008 and 2009, and was the recipient of the 2009 Voisin Trumpet Award. In May 2009 he was a featured performer in the Conservatory Project, part of the Millennium Stage series at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. He has performed with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Houston Symphony, Houston Grand Opera Orchestra, and the Santa Fe Symphony. Mr. Siders joined the Boston Symphony Orchestra as Assistant Principal/Third Trumpet in January 2010.

André Côme



Born in Cambridge, MA in 1934, Andre Come (BSO 1957-1987) studied trumpet with his uncle, Marcel Lafosse." During the Korean War, Mr. Come was a member of the Air Force Band and on discharge became a member of the Baltimore Symphony. In 1957, he succeeded his uncle as second trumpet of the Boston Symphony. He served on the faculties of the New England Conservatory, Boston University, Boston Conservatory and Brown University. He was for many years principal trumpet of the Boston Pops. His untimely death in 1987 resulted in a fellowship being endowed in his memory at the Tanglewood Music Center by his many colleagues and friends.
