Artist Comments

"I have a few important expectations of my instrument: it should sound good, be comfortable to play, and allow me the flexibility to fit into a wide variety of musical situations. My Edwards fulfills all of those expectations. A truly top-quality instrument."

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. As a 'Wechsel-Posaunist', Jeremy often moves onto 1st trombone, with about half his State Opera performances and about 20% of his Philharmonic performances on first part.

A native of McMinnville, Tennessee, Jeremy 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. 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.

Jeremy then 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 One O'Clock Lab Band. As part of the UNT TF 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.

In Their Own Words

Darren Kramer

"The Edwards Jazz Trombone is simply the best trombone I've ever played. I am NOT an equipment junky and I am not an impulse buyer, however, I visited the Edwards booth at the 2004 IAJE and ended up buying this horn on the spot! The consistency throughout the entire range of the horn is remarkable... every note feels the same! I also enjoy the response and tone flexibility - I am able to acheive a dark, lush tone on ballads as well as a full, biting tone on Funk, Jazz and Salsa when playing with my band DKO...all with minimal effort! I highly recommend this horn to any serious trombonist."
