Kris Kwapis, D.M.A.

Acclaimed by the New York Times for her “sterling tone,” Kris Kwapis plays baroque trumpet and cornetto with several period instrument ensembles including New York Collegium, Tafelmusik, Tempesta di Mare, New York State Baroque, Vancouver Early Music, Seattle Baroque, Clarion Music Society, Boston Early Music Festival Chamber Orchestra, Ensemble Rebel, Piffaro, Santa Fe Pro Musica, American Opera Theatre, I Furiosi, Concert Royal, Ciaramella and Early Music New York. Her playing can be heard on the Kleos, Naxos, ReZound, Lyrichord and Dorian labels and streaming on CBC. Kwapis is the Artistic Director of Spiritus Collective, an ensemble dedicated to performing rarely heard brass music of the 17th century. She holds degrees in trumpet performance from the University of Michigan, a doctorate in historical performance from Stony Brook University and lectures on early brass performance practice and trumpet history clinics with recent appearances at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the University of Wyoming, Madison Early Music Festival, Yale University Institute of Sacred Music and Rutgers University.
