Sonoklect: Jeremy Wilson, trombone concert and reception

Saturday, February 1, 2020 at 8:00 p.m.

Lenfest Center/Wilson Hall/Concert Hall

Reception will follow in Lykes Atrium, adjacent to the Concert Hall. 

Acclaimed for the versatility and lyricism of his playing, Jeremy Wilson is something of a legend in trombone circles. On his first-ever audition attempt at the age of 25, he won a prestigious position with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

Just out of college, he honed his performance skills as a member of one of the most renowned musical organizations in the world. During his tenure in Vienna, Wilson performed hundreds of orchestral concerts at home and in 28 countries around the globe under the batons of the world’s leading conductors. At the time, he was the orchestra’s only full-time American member.

A native of Tennessee, Wilson returned to his home state in 2012 to accept a full-time teaching position at Vanderbilt University’s Blair School of Music, where he remains in demand as a soloist and chamber musician.

Wilson will be joined in his W&L recital by pianist Caleb Harris. Additionally, he will perform works with electronic accompaniment.

No tickets are required.
