In 2010, he performed in the New York premiere of John Adams’s City Noir at Carnegie Hall.

Hudson has received multiple first prizes in the National Trumpet Competition, in the solo division in 2001 and 2004, and as a member of the Juilliard Trumpet Ensemble in 2009 and 2010. He has performed with the New York City Ballet, New World Symphony, Symphony in C, New York Trumpet Ensemble and the American Brass Quintet.

An avid baroque musician, Hudson also performs with period ensembles including Philharmonia Baroque, American Bach Soloists, the American Classical Orchestra and the Trinity Baroque Orchestra.

For his Ramsey Hall recital, Hudson will be accompanied by pianist Stephanie Wu, a Juilliard School graduate who teaches at the Geneva School of Manhattan’s Conservatory of Music. The recital will be recorded for broadcast on American Public Media’s Performance Today, heard by more than 1.3 million listeners across the country.

Hudson’s recital is part of the Spotlight on the Arts at UGA, a nine-day celebration of the arts.

Hudson also will join the UGA Wind Ensemble on Nov. 10 as guest trumpet player.
