THE Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra’s Instrument Petting Zoo continues with its live online program with featured trumpet player Glober C. Calambro on Sunday, August 16, at 4pm via the PPO Facebook page. 

Glober will talk about the trumpet and demonstrate how it is played in the instrument petting zoo session.  He will also perform classical pieces suited for the said instrument. 

Glober started playing trumpet at the age of 10 in Banda Navotas 98, Navotas City.  In 2001, he entered the University of the Philippines College of Music as a trumpet major under the tutelage of Prof. Raymundo Maigue.  In 2004, he won 2nd prize in category C at the National Music Competitions for Young Artists.  He was part of the SAYOWE (Southeast Asian Youth Orchestra and Wind Ensemble) as a Philippine delegate from 2004 to 2006.  He became the principal trumpet player in several bands and orchestras, among them, the Manila Symphony Orchestra (2004), SAYOWE, Wind Ensemble (2004), U.P. Orchestra (2006) and U.P. Symphonic Band (2003-present).  Likewise, he was a consistent band scholar of the U.P. ROTC Band Scholarship Program, and in 2012, he joined the Philbanda (Philippine Band Association).  In 2007, he became a member of Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, in which he is currently an Assistant Principal Trumpet.  

A project of the Cultural Center of the Philippines and the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, the instrument petting zoo aims to promote appreciation for musical instruments of the orchestra and its music among children and families.  It is held every Sunday at 4pm, and runs for several months.
