Per Brevig: Trombone

Per Brevig's career as a trombonist stretches back to his first solo radio performance in Norway in 1956, after which he was offered a post as trombonist with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. He began to study with Palmer Traulsen in Copenhagen soon thereafter, and in 1962 won a prize at the XIVth International Music Competition in Prague.

Leaving Europe in 1965 to study at the Julliard School in New York City, he completed his doctorate in 1971. While still a student at Julliard, he performed a solo trombone concert with the American Symphony Orchestra under Leopold Stokowski. From 1968 to 1994 he was a solo trombonist with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in New York.
