Matt entered the world of musical touring with a trip to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as a trumpeter in his high school band and has never looked back. He toured as a member of the Phantom Regiment Drum & Bugle Corps and as a member of the brass and visual staff with the Colts Drum & Bugle Corps. His music travels have taken him to a plethora of exciting international destinations, including a study program in Vienna and multiple tours with the St. Olaf Band & Orchestra. Matt brought invaluable experience to Gateway after five years with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra where he worked in artistic operations. Contributing to our unwritten quota of St. Olaf alums, he proudly displays the flag of his alma mater in Gateway’s operations department.
