Born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island, George began trumpet studies in grade school. He
began playing professionally in high school, and continued throughout his college years, including
playing in hotel bands in the Catskills, until entering medical school. After retiring from his
cardiology practice in 1995 he restarted trumpet playing, and is now active in symphony orchestras
in NJ and NY, concert band, musicals, and several big bands. He has enjoyed playing with the
Adelphi since 1998.
