ERIK SCHMALZ

ERIK SCHMALZ

 

Erik Schmalz, an early brass specialist, works internationally with prestigious ensembles including Tafelmusik, Ciaramella, Green Mountain Project, The Toronto Consort, and Dark Horse Consort.  He can be heard on numerous recordings, including a 2013 Grammy-nominated album by The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and The Trinity Baroque Orchestra, performing on period trombones, renaissance slide trumpet and recorder.  This versatility led to him being cast as one of the seven instrumentalists in the recent Globe Theater's productions of Richard III and Twelfth Night, the first time Broadway has used period instruments exclusively. Erik received degrees in trombone performance from Oberlin Conservatory of Music and the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. He resides in Collinsville, Connecticut where he also teaches early and modern low brass privately.
