In this capacity he crafts music for high profile events ranging from public concerts to presidential inaugurations. Prior to his appointment, he earned his master’s degree in composition at the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University. His bachelor’s degree in trumpet performance and composition was earned at Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts. Mr. Kosinski studied orchestral conducting with David LaMarche of American Ballet Theatre and band conducting with the late Darryl Bott of Rutgers University.
