Brent Trubia, viola & piano
Brent is originally from Centereach, Long Island, New York, and has been in Wilmington for the past 4 years, currently in his senior year at UNCW for his BA in Piano. He teaches Violin and Piano at his sister Meredith's studio, Port City Music in the Ogden area. In addition to the viola, he also plays the violin, piano and pipe organ. He plays Viola in the Tallis Chamber Orchestra, and he's a member of the choir at St. Paul's Episcopal Church.
When he's not at school, performing, or teaching, he's busy tuning and working on pianos, as well as collecting them. He currently has an inventory of 10 pianos for sale, with another 7 in storage for personal use. About his compulsion for collecting pianos, Brent says "It's a sickness, and I can't help it, nor do I need curing!"
When asked about a memorable experience of playing in the symphony, he recalls, "On one of the recent Christmas concerts, I was playing the keyboard on a Baroque piece that was about 20 minutes long. I had left my music on the keyboard from that morning's dress rehearsal. You might be able to guess where this is going. When I sat down at the keyboard, there was no music in front of me. I could have sworn I left it there! So about 5 minutes prior to the start of the concert, I told Dr. Errante. We ran all over backstage, asking stage crew, looking under tables, under chairs, and then... I found it... in my Viola case! Clearly, I'd made the right choice and took it with me that morning. Yeah, too bad I didn't remember I'd done that!"
So, if you get a chance to see this young, talented musician perform, be sure you don't pass it up! You will be delighted.

Do you have a commercial location where your for sale pianos can be seen. Or how do you show your wares? I have a friend who is interested in buying a piano.
