Tim Phillips


tim1.gif (15701 bytes) Tim Phillips, of Hudson, has provided all types of music for the Unifour area since 1975 and is the only original founding member of the group remaining.  In addition to playing, he serves as musical director.   Mr. Phillips is most noted in the southeast as a big band lead trumpeter, whose playing "rides herd over the ensemble with sterling percision" according to Down Beat writer, Owen Cordell.   Educated at Lenoir-Rhyne College and the NC School of the Arts, Mr. Phillips has studied with Mr. Arnold Jacobs, Mr. Raymond Mase, Dr. Ralph Gabriel and Mr. Mark McDunn.  Mr. Phillips currently plays with the Lenoir-Rhyne Concert Band, and for numerous theater pit orchestras, weddings, and funerals.  He also owns his own computer programming business, Avichron Data Services, to support his trumpet habit.
