London Symphony Orchestra
Artist's BiographyPaul Milner was born in Edinburgh and after a musical education, moved to Manchester to study at the Royal Northern College of Music. It was here in 1986 that he bought his first Vincent Bach bass trombone - a 50B3.
On leaving the RNCM with a Diploma in Professional Performance, Paul freelanced with some of the UK\'s leading orchestras, before gaining the position of Principal Bass Trombone with the Orchestra of Opera North, Leeds in 1993.
Having spent 14 years there, the position of Principal Bass Trombone in the London Symphony Orchestra became vacant. Paul was successful in gaining membership to the orchestra and began his role in 2007. He continues to occupy that position, still playing the same 50B3 that he purchased back in 1986!
Paul\'s second instrument, used when his 1st instrument is not available, is exactly the same model, which he acquired in 2004. He also uses a Vincent Bach 42B tenor trombone when required in the LSO.
Along with his very busy role in the orchestra, Paul is committed to the LSO Discovery education department. This involves playing his trombone to children in hospitals, coaching gifted children and community projects, to name but a few.
Paul has not released any solo CDs, but you can be sure to hear him on any recordings or movie soundtracks that the LSO has produced since 2007.
