Peter Moore

Principal Trombone

Member since 2014 | Professor at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama

Some of my earliest memories are of watching brass bands in the park, when I fell for the trombone straight away. My family were all involved in music one way or another and they actually tried to steer me away from it! However, my persistence paid off!

Peter Moore came to national attention in 2008 at the age of twelve when he became the youngest ever winner of the BBC Young Musician. Alongside his performing career, he is Professor of Trombone at the Royal Academy of Music.

As a soloist, Peter has appeared with the LSO, BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBCNOW, BBC Concert Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Ulster Orchestra, Lucerne Symphony and Polish Chamber Orchestra. He is featured frequently on BBC Radio 3 and was a New Generation Artist between 2015 and 2017. He has given multiple performances at Wigmore Hall. World premieres by Francisco Coll, Roxanna Panufnik, Dani Howard and the UK premiere of James Macmillan’s Trombone Concerto signify Peter’s desire to bring the trombone to the forefront of contemporary music.

Peter is a Getzen International Artist and performs on the 4147IB trombone.
