Allen Vizzutti has visited 55 countries and every state in the union to perform with a rainbow of artists and ensembles as both a classical and jazz artist.

Allenʼs souring trumpet sound can be heard on over 150 movie and game soundtracks including ʻStar Trekʼ and ʻHalo 1,2,&3ʼ.

He is a strong proponent of music education and his method books have become standard works for study worldwide.
