At just 24 years old, local trombonist Michael Buchanan is widely regarded as an emerging artist of great interpretative intelligence and technical ability. 

He was the recipient of both the First Prize and Audience Prize at the ARD International Music Competition 2015, as well as First Prizes at the Ian Bousfield International Trombone Competition 2015 and the Royal Overseas League Competition. In 2015 he received the Player of the Year award from the British Trombone Society. 

As an orchestral musician, Michael is delighted to currently be a contract member of the Vienna Philharmonic and Vienna State Opera. 

“For this sovereign power it all seemed as light as a breeze.”
