So after a little research I believe that it is a TA or asiapet lily. If you'll notice on some of the pics, although it is completely upright, it has a definite cup shape and the anthers are intermediate between a trumpet and asiatic. The style/stigma is also a little beefier as well. The foliage is also longer like a trumpet.

I've also included a picture of Black Charm to show the difference in a definite asiatic. Note the difference in flower shape and leaves.

Leaves would not be a good thing to go by, as there is incredible variation within the asiatic group. A large portion do have wider, shiny, and lighter green leaves, however. This is mostly due to the heavy use of Lilium maculatum ancestry.

But on the other extreme is Lilium davidii, also used in breeding to a lesser extent.

I agree Rick but you have to admit that the arrangement is trumpet esque.

Yes, especially how the petals are held and curved, and the beefier sex parts.
