A Journey to Greatness

Per Brevig’s professional music career began at 16 as a trombone player in his homeland of Norway. He played in the Norwegian military band for three years, starting in 1953, while also gaining recognition for his solos in local concerts and radio broadcasts. After playing with the military band, a scholarship allowed him to study in Denmark, under Palmer Traulsen, lead trombonist of the Royal Danish Opera Orchestra.

Now an experienced musician, Brevig followed a freelance trombone player career. From 1966 to 1970, he was the principal trombonist in the American Symphony Orchestra, performing works by Ferdinand David and Lars-Erik-Larsson.

Brevig was named president of the Musicians Club of New York in June 2018. He is now musical director and conductor of the Grieg Festival Orchestra, with some of the most talented New York freelance musicians. Learn more here:
