Dr. Albert Lilly will present a free concert at Bartlett Chapel United Methodist Church on Sunday,
April 28, 2019, at 3:00 p.m. As principal trumpet with the Hendricks Symphony Orchestra under the
direction of Benjamin G. Del Vecchio, Dr. Lilly will perform works by Handel, Hansen, de Falla,
Wallin, Korngold and Arutiunian. Dr. Rachelle Woolston will sing on the Handel works, and Amy
Eggleston will serve as collaborative pianist for the concert.
Dr. Lilly performs as an endorsing artist and clinician for Vincent Bach trumpets. Bach is a part of the
Conn/Selmer Corporation of Elkhart, IN.
Dr. Lilly has held positions of principal trumpet in several orchestras. He has appeared in guest
performances across the country from San Francisco to New York, either as a member of the
orchestra or as a soloist, with dozens of wind ensembles, jazz ensembles, and orchestras. He has
recorded radio and television commercials and jingles around Indiana, and his trumpet work can be
heard on NPR, ESPN, and CBS records.
Dr. Lilly’s love for teaching may exceed his superb performance skills. He works with numerous
school band programs across the country as an arranger, a consultant, and a program coordinator,
not only for the concert and marching bands but for indoor percussion lines, too, helping those
schools to earn placement in state and circuit finals including multiple state championships.
For over twenty years, Lilly has enthusiastically served as a member of the Central States Judges
Association and has been named to their Hall of Fame, an honor reserved for the few who have
given the most time to the association, to adjudication, and to the marching arts. He also judges for
indoor marching competitions in the winds division for Winter Guard International (WGI).
Having received music degrees from DePauw and Butler Universities, Lilly received his doctorate
from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University (Bloomington). Currently, he instructs trumpet
and horn at Marian University in Indianapolis.
Dr. Lilly lives on the family farm near Martinsville with his wife Vicki and their Brison Frisè, Josie.
