Carole Dawn Reinhart (Cover of record "The Trumpet Sounds of Carole Reinhart," 1965)


American musician, a trumpet soloist and Professor Emeritus at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. She is credited with ten solo releases (1965-2013) along with various other recordings.

At age 10, Reinhart received her first scholarship to the Juilliard School of Music in New York. She was the first woman to be honoured as a bandleader for the Salvation Army. At the age of sixteen she gave her first international concert in Toronto. As a result, she received a scholarship to the University of Miami and was named "National College Queen" in 1960. A Fulbright Scholarship enabled her to travel to Austria to study with Helmut Wobisch at the Vienna Music Academy, where she was the first female brass player to graduate with distinction. Reinhart returned to America to complete her studies at the Juilliard School of Music. She was first trumpet in the Juilliard Orchestra under Jean Morel, and graduated with a BA and an MA.

Reinhart's career continued after university, with work in television programs and in orchestras across the USA. Television work included: several installments of Fanfare, a 1965 musical variety series hosted by the popular trumpet player Al Hirt; one episode of To Tell the Truth in 1961; and appearances in the series Musik! Musik! from 1974.

In 1971 she moved to Berlin, where she performed with the Deutsche Oper Berlin and continued her international concert career. Reinhart gave the premiere performance of Gottfried von Einem's "Geistliche Sonate" (Sacred Sonata) in 1974. She recorded classical trumpet literature with the Munich Philharmonic and German Bach Soloists. In 1983 she was appointed as professor of trumpet at the Vienna Music Academy; from 1996 to 1998 she was also head of the department for wind and percussion. She recorded a number of solo albums and was featured as trumpet soloist on an album by soprano Lucia Popp, Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen, including Bach's cantata, where her style was described as "excellent" and "beautifully controlled". In 1996 she ended her solo career, but continued to teach at the Vienna Music University until 2011. In 2009 Reinhart wrote her dissertation on "Women Brass Musicians: Historical Documentation and the Influence of the International Women's Brass Conference on their Profession."

During her career Reinhart was discriminated against because she was a woman. Critics were dismissive of her and often focused their reviews on her appearance rather than her musicality. When she became engaged to fellow trumpeter Mannfred Stoppacher, critics suggested that he was the reason for her success, rather than her own achievements.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from an article: "Carole Dawn Reinhart is recognized as one of the world’s outstanding trumpet soloists, acclaimed not only for her technical ability, but also for tone quality and interpretation. A Christmas “carol” born at “dawn”, she received her first instruction at age 2 1/2 on a slide cornet from her mother, a trombonist."
