Phil Rumbley

Orchestra Bassist, 15th season

Phil is grateful and blessed to be back for another exciting year with the Texas Shakespeare festival. As adjunct music faculty at Tyler Junior College and The University of Texas at Tyler, Phil has recently completed his Masters in Music Education at Tarleton State University. Phil is currently a middle school orchestra director and assistant band director in Tyler Texas, and has taught privately in his bass studio for over 20 years. A member of the East Texas Symphonic Band, Green Acres Baptist Church orchestra and Tyler jazz ensemble The Jazz Connection, Phil and wife Karen and son Scotty reside in Tyler Texas and enjoy family time together at home and impromptu road trips. Thank you Raymond Caldwell and the Texas Shakespeare festival organization for allowing me to be part of this season.
