FIVE YEARS IN VIENNA
Jeremy Wilson is second trombonist in the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and its sister
organization, the orchestra of the Vienna State Opera. He joined the orchestras in 2007 after
winning what was his first ever orchestral audition. A native of McMinnville, Tennessee,
Wilson began his trombone studies with Tom Lundberg before attending the University
of Tennessee to study with Don Hough. While at the University of Tennessee, Jeremy
won the Eastern Trombone Workshop's National Classical Solo Competition for four
consecutive years (2003-2006). He was also lead trombonist in Tennessee Trombonery,
a jazz ensemble that in 2003 won the International Trombone Association's Kai Winding
Jazz Ensemble Competition as well as the Eastern Trombone Workshop's National Jazz
Ensemble Competition. He was a member of the Pride of the Southland Marching Band,
the UT Wind Ensemble, the UT Symphony Orchestra, and the UT Trombone Choir. In 2004
he was named a Presser Scholar, and in 2005 he received a dual bachelor of music degree
in music education and trombone performance. He was a member of the Knoxville Jazz
Orchestra, and often performed with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra. In 2006 Jeremy
attended the University of North Texas to pursue a master's degree, where he studied with
Vern Kagarice, Jan Kagarice, and Tony Baker. During his time there, he was a teaching
fellow, principal trombonist in the North Texas Wind Symphony, and a member of the
prestigious One O'Clock Lab Band. As part of the UNT Teaching Fellow Quartet, he
won the Eastern Trombone Workshop National Quartet Competition and the International
Trombone Association's Quartet Competition. Just before moving to Vienna, he also
won the International Trombone Association's Frank Smith Classical Solo Competition.
Now in his fourth season in Vienna, Jeremy has performed more than 200 Philharmonic
concerts in 23 countries under some of the world's greatest conductors, including Daniel
Barenboim, Pierre Boulez, Gustavo Dudamel, Valery Gergiev, Mariss Jansons, Lorin Maazel,
Zubin Mehta, Riccardo Muti, Simon Rattle, and Franz Welser-M6st. In the Vienna State
Opera, Jeremy has played more than 450 performances of 74 different operas and ballets. He
is currently the only American performing member of either orchestra, and in October 2010,
Jeremy became one of just a handful of Americans ever to have been made a full member of
the Society of the Wiener Philharmoniker. He and his wife Kristi now live in a small town
north of Vienna with their 3-year-old son Elijah.
