Marissa Benedict

16"x24" oil on canvas Our friend Marissa is the Principal Trumpet for the Pasadena Symphony and Pops. She seems to be in considerable demand, playing all over with different high caliber ensembles. As a matter of fact, if you play video games, you have probably heard her trumpet in the background whilst you performed black ops or got called to duty or blew the head off that annoying zombie waitress or deprived that very inconsiderate terrorist of his morning cup of joe. You name it, that violent act was backed up by a first class trumpet player who—against her better judgement, I'm sure—agreed to pose for me. Thank you, Marissa!
