William Broverman is an in-demand freelance bass trombonist and educator in Metro Vancouver. He was recently invited to speak at TEDxYouthDowsLake as a young leader in Canada’s classical music scene and was named in the 2021 edition of the CBC’s “30 Hot Classical Musicians Under 30” as the first bass trombonist to appear on the list.
William served four years as bass trombone with the Orquesta Sinfónica de Yucatán where he made his solo debut in 2018 performing the “Florida Concerto for Tenor and Bass Trombone” by Frigyes Hidas alongside OSY principal trombonist Todor Ivanov. Performed twice to sold-out crowds, William and Todor were praised for their “powerfully sweet and heterogeneous musicality” which brought audiences to their feet.
William has performed as a member of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Orquesta Sinfónica de Yucatán, Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, Canada West Chamber Orchestra, Lion’s Gate Sinfonia, and the National Academy Orchestra of Canada among many others.
He appeared twice as faculty bass trombone for the Merida International Brass Festival and was invited as a guest trombone professor to the Conservatorio Plurinacional in La Paz, Bolivia in 2019. He works regularly as a low brass clinician in schools across Metro Vancouver.
