Sachs joined The Cleveland Orchestra as Principal Trumpet 1988. He was recently appointed as Musical Director of the Steamboat, Colorado Music Festival.
His vast repertoire spans from traditional chamber music to collaborations with great innovators like Arturo Sandoval. Career highlights include the 1996 world premiere of John Williams' Concerto for Trumpet, commissioned by the Cleveland Orchestra for Sachs with Music Director Christoph von Dohnanyi conducting. He has also appeared as guest soloist with numerous orchestras and chamber groups, including the Houston Symphony Orchestra, the Auckland Philharmonia and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Along with his active performance schedule, Sachs serves as Chairman of the Brass division and Head of the Trumpet Department at the Cleveland Institute of Music. He has served on the faculty of several summer festivals, including the Aspen Music Festival, Grand Tetons Music Festival, National Brass Symposium, National Orchestral Institute, Summit Brass and the Solti Orchestral Project and Carnegie Hall.
