"Liam Day has done a great service for trumpet players of all levels by giving us a beautifully edited version of Manuel de Falla's, Siete Canciones (Seven Popular Songs), for trumpet and piano."
- Mark Gould
William (Liam) Day, a graduate of The Juilliard School and the Cleveland Institute of Music, is a trumpet player and educator.
From 2009-2016, Liam was a member of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and living in Kuala Lumpur. While in the Asia-Pacific region, he toured Japan, Malaysia and Vietnam with the Malaysian Philharmonic as well as performing solo engagements in Thailand, Australia, Hong Kong, China and Singapore. Liam was also faculty with the Malaysian Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and worked every year coaching Malaysia’s finest young brass section.
Since moving back to New York City in 2016, Liam has been busy performing around the world in many different settings; including an onstage trumpet role in Aida at the San Francisco Opera, Mendelssohn Symphonies with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, as well as acting second trumpet with the New York Philharmonic and a series of guest visits to Nord Anglia schools in the Middle East and Europe.
Teaching and playing go hand in hand with Liam’s school of trumpet playing. Before moving to Malaysia, he was a fellow with Ensemble Connect, a program of Carnegie Hall, the Juilliard School and the Weill Music Institute. As a teaching artist fellow with Ensemble Connect Liam honed his style of teaching with students at two vastly different New York City Public Schools. This experience instilled the importance of teaching to individuals and helping people to achieve their potential through music.
Liam, a recipient of the Frieda and Harry Aronson Scholarship, received a Master of Music degree in trumpet from The Juilliard School in 2007. He graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music in 2005, earning the Bernard Adelstein Award for excellence in trumpet.
