Sérgio Carolino


Portuguese tubist and Yamaha artist Sérgio Carolino started his tuba studies at the early age of 11 in Lisbon’s Conservatory and continued in the prestigious Superior Conservatory of Geneva (Switzerland) with Pierre Pilloud (principal tuba in the Suisse Romande Orchestra) as well participating in Kurt Sturzenegger’s Chamber Music Class. He has attended several masterclasses also with some the most acknowledged masters of today including Roger Bobo, Michel Godard, Pia Bücher, Philippe Legris, David Taylor, Øystein Baadsvik, Thierry Thibault, Mel Culbertson, Anne-Jelle Visser, Walter Hilgers, Enrique Crespo, Gene Pokorny, and Harvey Philips. His broad and accurate curiosity led him to pursue different styles of musical expression, ranging from the typical classical repertoire to the pure jazz and improvised music, also establishing his reputation as a virtuoso with both standard and contemporary repertoire for the tuba. He has played principal tuba in many orchestras including Gulbenkian and Remix Ensemble. He is a member of several different ensembles. Sérgio has appeared as a featured soloist not only in Portugal but also in France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, and Finland. He is constantly on the move as a Yamaha Artist giving masterclasses and recitals throughout Europe. Recent residencies have included the Real Conservatorio Superior de Madrid, Zürich Höchschule für Musik, 2003 Vigo International Tuba Festival, Lieksa Brass Week, International Brass Master Class in Quimper (France), and the 36th International Horn Symposium (Valencia).
