Brad Williams

Brad Williams has been Principal Trombone of the Sarasota Orchestra since 2009. Prior to that, he was Second Trombonist of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. During his career, he has performed with artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Renee Fleming and Charles Dutoit. Williams performs regularly with the Florida Orchestra, Naples Philharmonic and ensembleNEWSRQ, where he performed the Luciano Berio's fiendishly difficult Sequenza V for Solo Trombone, dressed and made up as Grock, the King of the Clowns. He also performed Sequenza V for the Ringling International Arts Festival.

A native of St. Petersburg, Florida, Brad was the only trombonist accepted into the undergraduate program at The Juilliard School in 2001. In his time away from music, Brad enjoys gardening, traveling, and most of all, spending time with his wife Rebecca and son Jude.
