During this time he also performed in 30 different countries and nearly every state in the united states performing clinics from brass ensembles to large band performances with choir, to include artists such as David Holsinger and Tony Bennett.

Mr. Walsh has enjoyed performing as asuccessful contract musician with the local groups such as the North Carolina Symphony, Durham Performing Arts Center, Jens Lindemenn and other, and is focused on exploring the possibilities of established a strong brass and chamber music program available to talented students in the area in order to share knowledge and further the legacy of music. Mr. Walsh is very well connected in-residence with three separate school systems when he teaches dozens of brass musicians every day. Mr. Walsh always has, and always will play exclusively on Bach instruments.
