Micah Kroeker spent the past summer performing with the National Academy Orchestra of Canada, shortly after being selected as a top-three finalist in the McGill Woodwinds/Brass/Percussion Concerto Competition (2020). He began his classical trombone studies at the Conservatoire d’Orléans (France) in 2014, winning the ArtEZ Conservatory Prize as a member of a trombone quartet at the Lätzsch Trombone Festival (Netherlands) that same year. He placed second in the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra’s Concerto Competition (2016), and twice won third place in the Winnipeg Youth Orchestra’s annual Scholarship Competition (2016, 2017). Micah participated in the National Youth Band of Canada in Montreal (2018) and currently studies classical trombone performance at the Schulich School of Music, where he performs with the McGill Symphony Orchestra.
