Larry Ransom is a graduate of the University of Nevada-Las Vegas School of Music and has performing in the Las Vegas area since 1996. He has had the privilege to perform with notables such as Hugh Jackman, Andrea Bocelli, Bernadette Peters, Dennis DeYoung, Amy Grant and more. Larry was Principal Trumpet of Phantom: The Las Vegas Spectacular orchestra for the last few years of its run at the Venetian Hotel. He’s been a contract member of the Las Vegas Philharmonic for over 20 years and has worked with other regional orchestras such as the Nevada Chamber Orchestra, Henderson Civic and the Southern Nevada Symphony. He served as a member of the Guardian Angel Cathedral orchestra for over a decade until it was disbanded during the pandemic.

Larry’s proudest achievement in music, however, is being a cofounder, with fellow trumpeters Gary Cordell and Joseph Durk, of TAPPS, Trumpeters Alliance to Perform Patriotic Services. TAPPS is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides live, professional trumpeters to perform ‘Taps’ at military funerals at no cost to military families.
