Trumpet and Double Bass Duo

Two active musicians within the Saskatoon community—Dean McNeill (trumpet) and Richard Carnegie (bass)—have enjoyed working together within a variety of musical collaboration opportunities. With a mutual desire to continually investigate new musical territory, their most recent duo project entitled Outside Voices explores the transparency of two-part musical counterpoint between the soprano and bass registers, with repertoire spanning contemporary, classical and jazz-influenced genres.

Double bassist, conductor and educator Richard Carnegie divides his creative time between playing principal bass with the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra, playing in a variety of chamber ensembles, teaching double bass at the University of Saskatchewan, and serving as music director of the Saskatoon Youth Orchestra.

Trumpet player/composer Dean McNeill is a member of the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra and is the artistic director of the Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra. Dean has been a professor of brass and jazz at the University of Saskatchewan for the past 23 years, over which time he has recorded and/or produced 15 CDs, performed and adjudicated throughout Canada, soloed with the National Youth Band of Canada and the Edmonton Winds (CD won a Western Canadian Music Award). Dean is honored to have received the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival’s Special Recognition Award, Downbeat Magazine’s Student Arranger’s Award, the University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union Teaching Excellence Award, and the USask Department of Music’ Dwayne Nelson Teaching Award.
