Greg van der Struik holds the position of Principal Trombone and Section Leader in the Opera Australia Orchestra. Greg received his first big break in 1984 when he received the opportunity to perform with Opera Australia. In addition to the trombone, Greg also plays the piano, the piano accordian and the bass trumpet amongst others. In his spare time Greg enjoys composing and the challenge of writing for a variety of ensembles.
Fun fact: The wharf at the Opera House is one of many unusual places Greg has played. He was asked to play a fanfare while the Music Director, Richard Hickox CBE, arrived by water taxi to conduct a New Year's Eve performance.
