Written By: Edward Solomon Comments: 0

Jeremy Wilson, second trombone with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the Vienna State Opera, has accepted a position as Associate Professor of Trombone at Vanderbilt University. He will begin his teaching duties in autumn 2012.

In my first lesson with Vern Kagarice at North Texas, we sat down and had a conversation about my career goals. I told him in that lesson, I would like to do a job just like yours. I said the same thing to Don Hough years earlier at the University of Tennessee.

Jeremy is looking forward to exploring more opportunities for solo performance, jazz, and chamber music in his new position. A large part of his time at Vanderbilt will be with the Blair faculty quintet.
