Trevor Barroero

Trevor Barroero, percussionist, has been the gold medalist of over half-a-dozen concerto competitions, most recently winning first place at the Pacific Region International Summer Music Academy’s concerto competition, which resulted in an invitation to travel to Russia to perform as timpanist with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra. 

A native of Tucson, Arizona, Barroero has performed as a soloist with nearly every major orchestra in Southern Arizona including the Tucson Symphony Orchestra, the Tucson Pops, the Civic Orchestra of Tucson, the University of Arizona Symphony Orchestra, and the Tucson Philharmonia Youth Orchestra.  Trevor has been a featured guest performer on the Tucson Morning Blend television show and on the KXCI "Locals Only” radio broadcast. 

Barroero was a selected participant of the Juilliard Summer Percussion Seminar, the Pacific Region International Summer Music Academy, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra Institute and, for two consecutive years, he was a participant at the Aspen Music Festival and School. Trevor was the winner of the annual mock audition at the Washburgh Timpani Seminar in 2016 and runner-up of the Cloyd Duff Timpani Masterclass mock audition in 2015. 

A founding member of the percussion trio Lineage Percussion, Trevor Barroero made history in May 2016 as his ensemble won the bronze medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, becoming the first percussionist in the 43-year history of the competition to be selected as a senior-division finalist. Before this, the trio was a semifinalist of both the Coltman Chamber Competition and the 2015 Fischoff Competition and was a third-place winner at the Percussive Arts Society’s Chamber Competition. 

A Flinn Scholar, Barroero is currently completing his final year of undergraduate studies at the University of Arizona as he pursues a Bachelor of Music in Percussion Performance. As a National Student Exchange Scholar, Barroero spent the past two years at the University of Georgia studying with Timothy K. Adams Jr., former timpanist of the Pittsburgh Symphony and Kimberly Toscano-Adams, former timpanist of the Tucson Symphony. Trevor is currently a student of Dr. Norman Weinberg and Dr. Morris Palter at the University of Arizona.
