In sixth grade, Greg Ingles decided he wanted to play a brass instrument in band, but since his older sister already played the French horn, he decided to take up the trombone. Greg attended high school at the Interlochen Arts Academy and went on to graduate college from the Oberlin Conservatory. Two days after graduation Greg won the position of Solo Trombone in the Hofer Symphoniker in Hof, Germany. He returned to the United States and completed both a Master’s and Doctorate degree in trombone performance at SUNY Stony Brook. It was during his graduate work that Greg became acquainted with the sackbut and historical performance. Soon after beginning his early music studies Greg became a member of Piffaro, the Renaissance Band. He has since played with such ensembles as the American Bach Soloists, Chatham Baroque, Chiaroscuro, Concerto Palatino, and Tafelmusik. Greg is also a member of Ciaramella and has just completed a recording with this group on the Yarlung Records label. Mr. Ingles has also recorded with Anakekta, Centaur, Dorian, Kleos, and reZound. Greg taught modern trombone at Hofstra University for ten years and currently teaches sackbut at the Madison Early Music Festival each summer.
