Greg Ingles attended high school at the Interlochen Arts Academy and went on to graduate from the Oberlin Conservatory. Two days after graduation he won the position of Solo Trombone in the Hofer Symphoniker in Hof, Germany. He returned to the United States and completed both a master’s and doctoral degree in trombone performance at SUNY Stony Brook. It was during his graduate work that Greg became acquainted with the sackbut and historical performance. Soon after beginning his early music studies Greg became a member of Piffaro, the Renaissance Band. He has since played with such ensembles as the American Bach Soloists, Chatham Baroque, Chiaroscuro, Concerto Palatino, Quicksilver and Tafelmusik. Greg is also a member of Ciaramella and has recorded with this group on the Yarlung and Naxos record labels. He is Music Director of the Dark Horse Consort, an ensemble devoted to rarely performed brass music of the 17th century. Mr. Ingles has also recorded with Anakekta, Centaur, Dorian, Kleos, and reZound. Greg was the adjunct trombone professor at Hofstra University for over a decade. He teaches sackbut at the Madison Early Music Festival each summer.
