A graduate of North Texas State University, Wood has performed throughout the U.S. and in Germany, Belgium, Africa, and Mexico.

Wood plays trumpet with several ensembles, including Naturally Brass, the Jack Terry Big Band, Full House, the Jack Mitchell Big Band, and LakeWood Trio. Earlier in his career, he played several shows in Branson, Missouri.

Wood’s performance at Henderson will feature several works, including two pieces accompanied by Henderson’s NuFusion jazz ensemble. His appearance is made possible by the Henderson Student Government Association and the HSU Trumpet Guild.
