Euphonium player – The Jazzaar Festival Big Band
Tiziano Pedrocchi was born on October 15. 1999 in Affoltern am Albis, Switzerland, and grew up in Maisprach in the canton of Baselland. He began playing the piano at the age of 8 and 5 years later he had his first trumpet lesson.
As a member of smaller and bigger formations like the youth band Wegenstettertal or the Brass Band Zuzgen, he developed his skills as a trumpeter and cornet player quickly. It was not until 2015 that he began to play the euphonium and thus discovered his greatest passion. Already one year later he participated in competitions such as the Nordwestschweizer Solisten und Ensemble Wettbewerb (NSEW) and came directly into the ranks.
His musical skills were developed through his instrumental teacher Andreas Meier, as well as by the Musikgymnasium Muttenz. He gained experience as a soloist and parts leader in the chamber choir and large choir of the Gymnasium Muttenz and sang in the renowned choir PourChoeur. He also played in brass bands such as the AEW Concert Brass or in harmonic formations such as the AdHoc NW, which was very important to him.
After military training school as a solo euphonium player with the Swiss Military Band, he began 2021 with his bachelor studies in euphonium performance. As a member of the Brass Band Rickenbach, the Stadtmusik Luzern, and an active member of the Bürgermusik Luzern he has moved his musical base to Central Switzerland. During his musical career, he played under greats such as Dani Haus, Hervé Grelat, Michael Bach, and Bert Appermont.
For Tiziano, it is already his second participation in the Jazzaar Festival.
“I hope to have a great time with different musicians. New musical insights, awesome moments in the rehearsals and at the concerts, and a musically high-quality final product are my personal goals.”
