Sydney Wind Symphony is pleased to announce that Scott Kinmont, Associate Principal Trombone of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra will be performing the Grøndal Trombone Concerto with it at its concert on 22 September.
Since his appointment to the position of Associate Principal Trombone with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the age of 20, Scott Kinmont has established himself as one of the leading brass players in this country. In addition to holding the unusual distinction of winning international solo competitions on different instruments – the trombone and the euphonium – Scott’s eclectic tastes have led him to pursue a performing and recording career on the Renaissance trombone (or sackbut) and the obscure Renaissance instrument the serpent. Scott has a busy performing schedule playing with the Brandenburg Orchestra, the Sydney Consort, Orchestra Romantique and the New Holland Ensemble.
In 2002 he was the recipient of the Fulbright Award for the Visual and Performing Arts which enabled him to travel to the US to complete his Master’s degree and to appear as guest lecturer in euphonium at Northwestern University in Chicago.
Scott has appeared as a soloist with a variety of ensembles including brass and concert bands, jazz ensembles and orchestras. He has also appeared as a guest artist at many leading musical institutions and at many of Australia’s most important brass symposiums. In addition to his orchestral commitments, he is currently Lecturer in Trombone Studies at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
He collaborates with young Australian composers and has premiered several pieces written for him including a euphonium concerto by Peter Keller premiered in Chicago in 2003, Lee Bracegirdle’s Euphonium Concerto premiered with the SSO in 2008 and a Euphonium Concerto by Brendan Collins with the Lurline Chamber Orchestra in 2011.
