TromboneRichard Gordon

Staff Opera Musician

Whether entertaining the other musicians with his humor or performing with the San Diego Symphony at the Opera or other local ensembles, trombonis Richard Gordon has a wonderful way of sharing his gifts with others – on and off the stage. "Anyone who knows the personalities that end up matching with certain instruments knows that every trombone player is truly unique. We play hard, both on stage and off. One thing that I try to do is keep it 'light' in the brass section," comments Mr. Gordon.
