Felix Eckert

Felix (*1991) is the multi-tasking member of our group. He presents at concerts, writes songs and also plays jazz. He is the one who plays those thrilling trombone soli and creates some of our own compositions.

Before winning national prizes at “Jugend musiziert“ and joining the National Youth Orchestra, Felix received his first lessons on the trombone at the age of eight. His father taught him in their hometown of Bad Neustadt an der Saale. After that Felix took up his pre-studies with Prof. Andreas Kraft and became a regular student in 2010. He receives a scholarship from Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes.

Felix gained his first professional experience in orchestras during his time as a temporary solo trombonist at Mainfrankentheater Würzburg and at the Academy of the Symphonieorchesters des Bayrischen Rundfunks. Since 2015 he has been solo trombonist at the Philharmonic Orchestra Hamburg.

As a founding member Felix has been with Salaputia Brass Connection since 2011.
