Christof Schmidt

Christof advanced from “spare” bass trumpeter to permanent member after his performance during our tour of Hungary in October 2006. After a teaching degree in English and music at Heidelberg he spent formative years in Britain, where he studied trombone at the Guildhall School of Music in London with Prof. Eric Crees and Prof. Simon Wills. A Jack of several trades, he now works both as a textbook editor and a freelance musician and teaches trombone and chamber music at Michelbach/Bilz specialist music school. He is the founder and organiser of the “Hohenlohe Brass” with which he has, among others, toured Israel, Palestine, Jordan and India. As of late he even has his own bass trumpet (especially for us!) and regularly drives his trombone playing housemates up the wall with it.
