Associate Principal Trombonist BYRON PEEBLES was born in Granum, Alberta, Canada, and moved to Los Angeles in 1941. Educated in California, he received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the UC Santa Barbara and a Master of Music degree from the University of Southern California. While at USC, he studied trombone with Robert Marsteller. Peebles began his orchestral career with the Indianapolis Symphony and later became a member of the Chicago Symphony under Fritz Reiner. In 1959 he was invited to participate in the Casals Festival in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
He has been a member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic since 1962, serving as Principal Trombonist for 25 years; he has appeared often with the Philharmonic New Music Group. He enjoys walking, hiking, and golf, and spends some of his extra time teaching and playing in recording studios for motion pictures and television. His "serious" hobby, however, is the stock market.
