ITG Orchestral Excerpt Competition: 2006


"Gebo's strength was a beautifully centered tone quality that manifested itself in the lyrical excerpts (especially the singing quality and fullness of sound he attained in the Bizet). His Petroushka was accurate, even, and flowed exceptionally well. Gebo was secure and accurate in the muted Respighi and Bartok excerpts playing with an equal measure of power and accuracy."

ITG Solo Competition: 2004


"Last to perform was Kevin Gebo, a student of William Campbell from the University of Michigan. Gebo also performed the Vizzutti from memory and impressed the audience with his technique and expressive drive. For his chosen piece, Gebo performed the Tartini Concerto on piccolo trumpet, also from memory. Rebecca Wilt, the unsung hero of the morning, accompanied this pre-classical work with wit and grace. Following a brilliant first movement, Gebo spun a seductive cantabile in the second that entranced the audience, and finished with an extremely fast finale replete with quicksilver virtuosity and ringing high notes. The appreciative audience rewarded Gebo with an enthusiastic ovation."
