Originally from Houston, Texas, Austin Cruz has just completed his junior year at UT-Austin. During his time at the university, he has performed as a principal musician in the Symphony Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, and New Music Ensemble. Austin has had the opportunity to perform and compete at various events including the 2019 Texas Governor inauguration ceremony, and being runner up the 2018 National Trumpet Competition ensemble division. He enjoys spending time as a middle school and high school instructor in the local Austin area. He looks forward to a summer at Round Top full of new experiences and lessons to learn.
