Michael Grose – Tuba People TV
Grose received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Northwestern University, where he was a student of Arnold Jacobs. After graduation, he continued his private study with Jacobs until 1998.
Before assuming his position in Savannah, Grose was a tubist with Civic Orchestra of Chicago and the Illinois Philharmonic. He has performed with the Chicago, Oregon, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Honolulu, Charleston, and Jacksonville symphonies, and the Boise Philharmonic. An accomplished chamber musician, Grose received the Sweepstakes Award at the Fischoff International Chamber Music Competition, making him the first tubist to receive that prize. Grose was also a prize-winner at the Coleman Chamber Music Competition in Pasadena, California. Both awards came while he was a member of the Chicago-based Asbury Brass Quintet. A founding member of the Millar Brass Ensemble, Grose has recorded for the London/Decca and Crystal Records labels.
